Disability Pride Month

Disability Pride Month in July is our chance to gather as a team to celebrate and embrace our Target Team Members with Disabilities by educating ourselves about their lived experiences.

Disability and Mental Health Business Council

To truly live out our joyful purpose, we make sure our team members have what they need to feel connected and included. The Disability & Mental Health Business Council (DMHBC) is one of seven Diversity and Inclusion Business Councils at Target that provides a supportive community for our team, along with resources aimed at eliminating barriers and stigma. DMHBC members also play a critical advisory role, helping to ensure that our products, services and marketing reflect the communities we serve. 

Our Commitment to Accessibility

We love creating joyful moments that all of our guests can enjoy. That means designing each experience in our stores and online to be easy to access and shop. Learn more about the steps we're taking to accomplish that goal. 

Design for All

Target offers guests curated lines of clothing & home products designed with, and for, guests with different abilities, with more than 200 unique sensory friendly & adaptive products available.

It’s our goal at Target to always make sure we have products that fit our guests’ needs, and all at a reasonable price point. We heard from our guests—and members of our own team—that there’s a need for adaptive clothing for kids that is both fashionable and affordable, so we set out to create exactly that.
