Okta for Good Impact Report

February 2021

Okta for Good is on a mission to strengthen the connections between people, technology, and community.

The importance of these connections has never been more clear than over the last year — when we experienced a global pandemic, rising inequality, and global calls for racial justice. Many people turned to technology to support resiliency and innovation to help tackle our toughest challenges.

We believe the most effective social impact efforts leverage all of a company’s core competencies and resources. That’s why Okta for Good’s core strategies have stayed tightly aligned with Okta’s strategy, focusing on accelerating Tech for Good, expanding economic opportunity, supporting our local communities, and empowering employees to be changemakers.

Welcome to our first annual social impact report, in which we share the important work undertaken by our partner organizations over the past year, and the ways in which we are able to support them. We include updates, key takeaways, and even learnings in the hope that this information can be helpful for other companies and community partners.
