Show & Tell: Prudential’s committment to invest $180M in programs for ‘opportunity youth’

Lata Reddy is senior vice president of diversity, inclusion and impact with Prudential Financial and chair and president of the Prudential Foundation.

We asked her why Prudential has committed to invest more than $180 million in programs for “opportunity youth,” people ages 15-29 who lack access to school, training or regular jobs.

“We’ve seen firsthand from our work with partners around the world the positive ripple effect that supporting youth in this way has on local communities. Integrating this population into the workforce will drive revenue growth for businesses and the global economy. With the right skills and training, opportunity youth can be both an engine of growth and a catalyst for positive social change.”
