We recognize the systemic and structural barriers that Black and Indigenous communities and communities of color face every day. We believe everyone has a role to play in addressing these injustices. We’re committed to using our size, scale and resources to advance social justice and racial equity both inside and outside of Target. We are working toward a future where everyone, regardless of their race or background, has equal access to opportunities and in which everyone feels welcome, valued and respected.
We’ll invest in local and national partnerships to address social justice.
We’ve committed $10 million from Target and the Target Foundation to support long-standing partners such as the National Urban League and the African American Leadership Forum. We’ll be adding new partners in Minneapolis-St. Paul and across the country to further address the systemic and structural barriers facing Black and Indigenous communities and communities of color. We’ll also offer guests the choice to direct Target funds to organizations supporting social justice through Target Circle, our loyalty program.
We’ll support Black-, Indigenous- and people-of-color-owned businesses.
We’ve committed 10,000 hours of pro-bono consulting services for Black-, Indigenous- and people-of-color-owned small businesses in the Twin Cities to help with their rebuilding efforts, and the Target Foundation will also provide grants to nonprofits that can further help support these small business owners. In addition, the Foundation will continue its efforts to promote racial equity in the areas of housing, asset-building and workforce development and grants are open until July 15.
We’ll provide essentials and supplies to communities in need.
We’ll continue to listen and learn in order to best partner with our communities, and that includes donating essentials such as baby formula, diapers, medicine and more to those most in need.
We’ll partner with our stakeholders to chart Target’s path forward.
We’ve established a Racial Equity Action Committee comprised of senior leaders across the company to partner with our team members, guests and members of the community to determine Target’s next steps.
We’ll foster a company culture committed to diversity, inclusion and antiracism.
Our current three-year Diversity & Inclusion commitments focus on creating an increasingly relevant experience for our guests and an inclusive work environment for our team members. This work includes developing inclusion acumen across our teams through immersive experiences and unconscious bias trainings, hiring and retaining a diverse team and committing to equitable advancement of our talented team members, and investing in supplier diversity and inclusive marketing that ensures all guests feel valued and represented at Target.
