People with Disabilities
The Target team believes in making joy accessible for every guest and team member, from the inclusive product designs across our assortment to the technology that powers our shopping experiences.
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 & Mental Health Business Council
To truly live out our joyful purpose, we offer our team members a place to feel connected and included. The Disability & Mental Health Business Council (DMHBC) is one of seven Diversity and Inclusion Business Councils at Target, and it 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 and home products designed with, and for, guests with different abilities, with more than 200 unique sensory friendly and adaptive products available. We continue to enhance access to stylish and affordable sensory-friendly merchandise, and functional adaptive apparel that is designed to make clothes more easily usable by everyone.
Meet a few of our partners
Target’s relationship with Oakland, California-based nonprofit Creative Growth goes way back. Their mission: to provide artists with disabilities invaluable resources like a professional studio environment for artistic development, gallery exhibitions and representation. Over the years, Target has featured some of those artists' work on our products and in stores, and we continue to sponsor the organization's annual Beyond Trend Runway Event + Fundraiser to help create even more opportunities.
As a member of the National Organization on Disability’s Corporate Leadership Council, Target continues to learn and find new, innovative ways to eliminate barriers for our guests and team members with disabilities. We’ve also been recognized as a Leading Disability Employer on their Disability Employment Tracker.
