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 focused on representation, advancement and retention, equitable experience and business that will further our DE&I progress for our team and business.


Build a diverse workforce that represents the communities we serve. 

Advancement & retention

Ensure every team member has equitable experiences and equitable access to career advancement.

Equitable experience

Create an inclusive culture that values differences, ideas, and experiences; and all team members feel a sense of belonging. 


Drive equitable business decisions that increase relevance with diverse guests and support economic inclusivity. 

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, direct our corporate giving and Target Foundation support to communities of color 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.

Commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion

Target has leaned further into diversity, equity and inclusion through our Racial Equity Action and Change (REACH) and Target Forward efforts. In the past year, we have introduced commitments made to accelerate our DE&I efforts. 

REACH helps us urgently advance our diversity, equity and inclusion work specific to Black team members and guests, and Target Forward, our new 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 community.
