Celebrating Black History Month through art and education

At Paper, we pride ourselves on the diversity of our team and our growing commitment to social equity initiatives both inside our company and throughout our work with school districts and students. Equity has been a cornerstone of our culture since our earliest days. Paper was founded to help increase equity in education and close the education and opportunity gaps that adversely affect too many communities.

We believe celebrating the diversity among our team members and communities makes us a stronger company and a better community partner. As we celebrate Black History month, we want to reflect on the culture, history, and contributions of the Black community while also creating a space that amplifies and supports our current and future generations of Black voices. 

To kick off Black History Month, we’ve partnered with Maxwell Step, an artist that works as a Product Designer at Paper. He also started selling his digital art in 2019 to share his craft with others and to show his children that they can live out their passions and highlight heroes that look like them.
