DE&I Goals 2022 Play

Our goals

Target is committed to continuing to build a diverse workforce that reflects the communities we serve. We make data-driven goals and transparently share progress with our team. We set our goals on three-year timeframes, which provides enough time to make meaningful progress as an organization. 

Our 2022-2024 goals are designed to further our diversity, equity & inclusion (DE&I) progress for our team and business.

Driving progress

Our ambitious diversity, equity and inclusion DE&I goals have helped us to recruit and retain more diverse team members, offer more products from diverse suppliers, provide support to communities of color through corporate giving and Target Foundation-led efforts and more.

Leaders are charged with achieving these goals, and we’re focused on building a team that reflects our guests, increasing advancement opportunities, reducing turnover among team members from diverse backgrounds and helping all team members have equitable experiences across the organization.

Progress highlights: 

  • Our workforce is 53% people of color and more than half (56%) are women.
  • Nearly half of our Leadership Team is comprised of women and a quarter are people of color.
  • Of the members of our Board of Directors, nearly 40% are women and nearly 40% are people of color.
  • Nearly half of our stores are managed by a female leader and more than a third are managed by a leader of color.
  • We have doubled the representation of company officers of color in the past five years.

Commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion

Target has leaned further into DE&I through our Racial Equity Action and Change (REACH) and Target Forward strategy. In the past few years, we made commitments to accelerate our DE&I efforts through these initiatives.

REACH helps us advance our DE&I work specific to Black team members and guests. And Target Forward, our enterprise sustainability strategy, includes goals to create an equitable and inclusive workforce and workplace, specifically to build a team that equitably reflects the communities we serve by 2030. This puts Target in a position to leverage our strength to ensure DE&I has an even deeper impact on our team, guests and communities.
