No. 50 | Kohl's
“As a large company — and one that serves millions of families from diverse backgrounds — Kohl’s acknowledges pervasive injustices in the country and has committed to actions and behaviors that will help make our company, our stores and the world a better place. While we know there is much more to do, we are driven by the progress we have made and the promise of more to come.”
Lydia SmithDirector of Diversity and Inclusion
“This year, we evolved our Diversity and Inclusion strategy to focus on people, communities and customers to more closely align to our overall company strategy. We’ve worked diligently to embed D&I into everything we do, from technology, to product development, to marketing and more.”
From The Company
At Kohl’s, we’ve created a Diversity and Inclusion Task Force to ensure that we are embedding D&I into our company strategy.
Our Diversity Design Council was created so that the products we sell reflect the diversity of our customers and our marketing efforts are inclusive as well.
We continue to identify more opportunities to build meaningful relationships in underrepresented communities, to help us attract a more diverse workforce and create opportunities for economic prosperity through our supplier diversity programs.
We also invest in our associates through development programs that focus on reflection, exposure and engagement. We are being intentional about creating an environment where all associates feel they not only belong but can also speak up and be heard.
A strong, inclusive culture is where associates feel valued for who they are, not just what they do. When we embed DE&I in our workplace, it has the ability to foster a feeling of belonging. When we create an environment where everyone feels heard and valued, our personal and business success can be maximized.
