From The Company
Best Buy’s purpose is to enrich lives through technology, and we know we can’t do that without an inclusive culture and diverse employees who reflect our customers. We have set several commitments to better address underrepresentation, technology inequities and create educational and career opportunities for those who need it most. These include:
- In FY23, filled 37% of new, salaried corporate positions with Black, Indigenous and People of Color (“BIPOC”) employees, compared to our goal to fill one of three positions and filled 25% of new, salaried field positions with female employees, compared to our goal to fill one of three positions.
- We are committed to creating a stronger community of diverse suppliers to help increase BIPOC representation in the tech industry. We continue making progress on our commitment to spend at least $1.2 billion with BIPOC and diverse businesses by 2025. In addition, we are investing up to $10 million with Brown Venture Group, a venture capital firm that focuses exclusively on Black, Latinx and Indigenous technology startups in emerging technologies.
- For our communities, we continue making progress on our commitment to spend $44 million by 2025 to expand college preparation and career opportunities for BIPOC students, including adding scholarships for Historically Black Colleges and University students and increasing scholarship funding for Best Buy Teen Tech Center youth.
