Impact Spotlight: Project Fair Shot

It is open to eligible organizations around the world and will remain free until at least July 1, 2022 or longer if there is still more demand for appointments for the vaccine than there is supply.

A better Internet is built by teams that are diverse and inclusive.

Cloudflare is building a thriving, collaborative culture where we respect each other's work, listen to new ideas, and encourage each other's growth.

“Having a workplace that allows our team to feel a sense of belonging and empowerment to do their best work is essential. That's why we've built corporate practices, policies, benefits, and an overall culture that's inclusive of everyone, including LGBTQIA+ folks. Achieving a perfect 100 score on the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index, and being recognized alongside all of the other companies that have acted to create inclusive workplaces, is something we are proud of.”
