Micro Focus

Inspire a Million Lives

Helping to equip our communities with the right skills to be successful in their digital futures

Our Ambition to Inspire a Million Lives

To help communities around the world impacted by COVID-19, Micro Focus has partnered with a variety of non-profits and charities to support people in need and help eliminate digital exclusion.

Our goal is to Inspire a Million Lives – part of our ongoing commitment to Micro Focus INSPIRE, our global Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) program designed to cover multiple aspects of what it means to be a socially and environmentally responsible global enterprise.

Inspire a Million Lives further drives our focus on assisting people affected by COVID-19 and responding to digital exclusion by building long-term and sustainable partnerships that deliver measurable impact. Many of the partnerships will include volunteering opportunities for employees who are each eligible to four days a year for volunteering activities, one for a charity or cause of their choice, one to support the company’s social impact goal of helping equip communities with the skills needed to be successful in their digital lives and two days to volunteer time to help those in need of help due to COVID-19.

Our Partnerships

As an indication of our commitment to Inspire a Million Lives, Micro Focus is collaborating with the following organisations:
