We believe Black Lives Matter. At the SEMI Foundation, we are determined to support the creation of a more just and equitable future for Black, Indigenous, Hispanic/Latin, Asian, Pacific Islanders, and all people of color all across our country and around the world. We acknowledge the broken systems that have resulted in inequities throughout our industry. We are launching new work, both internal to the Foundation and external for our partners, to confront these social and economic inequities and to dismantle and rebuild these systems with an anti-racist framework.  

We are committed to supporting diversity, equity, and inclusion both within SEMI and for all of our member companies and partners. Please use the links below to find a variety of articles, videos, book recommendations and other resources to further these conversations in your own company and community.   

Topics include:

  • leading with empathy
  • having tough conversations around race
  • supporting employees
  • creating a culture of equity and inclusion

We welcome your suggestions for additional resources to highlight. Please reach out to us at
