When we create a Target where all feel seen, heard and welcome, it helps us attract and retain top talent, deliver a shopping experience that meets the changing needs of consumers and contribute to the vibrancy of local communities. And as we’ve seen for decades, it helps us grow profitably and drive our business forward.”

“Making a positive impact on Target’s team members, guests and communities not only reflects the dedication we have fostered during our nearly 20-year DE&I journey, it also echoes our commitment to building environments of belonging for all. We believe in ‘growing the circle’ – a shared accountability where we all play a role in shaping a culture of inclusion that is sustainable, drives business results and allows everyone to thrive.”
