Purpose Moves Us

Our purpose is to unite the world through sport to create a healthy planet, active communities and an equal playing field for all.


Equality isn't a game. But achieving it will be our greatest victory. Until we all win.

We believe in the power of sport to unite everyone and to inspire people to take action in their communities. We are committed to creating an inclusive culture at Nike and breaking down barriers for all athletes*.

We believe in the power of sport to unite and inspire people to take action in their communities.

We work with grassroots organizations, partners and employees around the world to advance equality, level the playing field for all and make play and sport more approachable and accessible for kids. Because we know that active kids do better — in school, in their communities and in their future careers. And while all kids are made to play, not every kid gets the opportunity.

NIKE exists to progress sport. But in recent years, we also face a broader challenge: to protect sport itself.
