Our deep commitment to the open source community is key to our success, and it extends beyond our technology. Through our collaborative open culture, Red Hatters connect with each other to support our local communities and the world at large. We do our best when we do good together. See how in our annual report.
Strengthening the communities where we live and work
Our corporate citizenship efforts include donations to nonprofit organizations, gift matching, and global volunteer programs. We primarily focus our efforts in areas Red Hatters care about the most, including organizations that provide for basic human needs, STEM education in primary/secondary schools, higher education, environment and sustainability, and health.
PEOPLE AND CULTURE
Fostering innovation through an open organization
At Red Hat, we have a unique culture rooted in open source principles. We collaborate and share ideas, create inclusive communities, and welcome diverse perspectives from all Red Hatters, no matter their role. We’re leaders in a movement larger than ourselves. We work to defend software freedom, connect people and ideas, and show the world the power of the open source way.
ENVIRONMENT AND SUSTAINABILITY
Reducing environmental impact through sustainable practices
With initiatives and associate engagement focused on reducing waste and power usage, recycling, and composting, we continue to think creatively to find new ways of bringing business and environmental responsibility together—whether working from home or in an office.
CHAMPIONS OF SOFTWARE FREEDOM
Defending the open source ecosystem
We’ve spent more than two decades collaborating on community projects—including protecting open source licenses—so we can continue to develop software that pushes the boundaries of technological ability.
Empowering the nonprofit sector with open source technologies
The Social Innovation Program uses open source for the greater good by leveraging Red Hatters' skills, Red Hat technologies, consulting, and training services to contribute to open source projects. By working with nonprofits and other sectors, we’re helping build shared open source solutions that are solving societal problems.
Red Hat’s culture is built on a strong foundation of ethics, transparency, and accountability to ensure we do business the right way. Our policies, processes, controls, and training are designed to foster an environment of trust both inside and outside of Red Hat in all communities in which we operate.
Red Hat Research
Red Hat Research fosters collaborative research efforts in key areas including AI/ML, security, cloud, hardware, the OS, and more. From large multi-partner collaborations to doctoral theses, we enable connections between Red Hat engineers, professors, researchers, and students to identify great research ideas and bring them into open source communities.
