Udemy is proud and humbled to be the only educational technology company included in the Fortune 2020 Change the World List.

Since Udemy’s founding over a decade ago, we’ve enabled our expert instructor community to create, host, and share over 15,000 free courses with students around the world. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we launched the Udemy Free Resource Center (UFRC), a space on Udemy.com where individual learners can find a curated collection of over 150 free Udemy courses to help people everywhere face new challenges and opportunities and do whatever comes next. Over 1.45 million people have enrolled in courses in the UFRC since we launched it in April 2020.
Udemy employees around the globe team together to work with various local organizations, with initiatives ranging from mentoring middle school students on future career paths to raising money for laptops to donate to refugee children in need of laptops to access their own education.
