Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

We are committed to Total Associate Engagement because we know our strength is our people.

Our values—particularly Integrity in Everything We Do and Total Associate Engagement—compel us to build a culture that values and welcomes differences among our associates, customers and the broader community. Our diversity, equity and inclusion work is built on three pillars, as explained below.

Our three pillars of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in business

Our DEI initiatives reflect our dedication to fostering a workplace that values diverse voices, celebrates inclusivity and embraces change. We are at the beginning of a transformative journey, taking our initial strides in a comprehensive effort to foster a diverse and inclusive workplace. We focus on long-term investment, pledging the necessary resources and time to make a lasting impact. 


Continue to build a culture of inclusion and collaboration in which associates feel they belong and can bring their authentic self to work every day, leveraging employee resource groups (ERGs) to help educate and celebrate differences.

Support partner organizations through volunteerism, product donations and charitable giving, helping build a more diverse and skilled workforce over time.
