Team Members & Guests
Inclusivity is a core value at Target, and we’re proud of our work to be an open and welcoming company. Our value of inclusivity plays an important role in everything we do to create a welcoming culture for our team and guests.
At Target, we believe every team member plays a role in supporting how we champion an inclusive society, and that our work is never done.
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.
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.
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 our aim to drive equitable opportunities and outcomes for advancement and engagement by continuing to be a leader in diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging. 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.
