No. 13 | Target
Brian CornellChairman and CEO
“Diversity & inclusion are at the heart of what we do at Target. 75% of the U.S. population lives within 10 miles of a Target store — and in order to win in retail, we need to reflect that population in our team to ensure we deliver the product, services, experiences and messages our guests want and need.”
Caroline WangaVice President and Chief Culture, Diversity & Inclusion Officer
“We know that in this business landscape people get to choose whether or not they want to engage with us, and they make those decisions with their dollars. In order to continue to be a place where people want to come and spend their money, we have to be connected to who our potential customers are across the board, and in order to stay relevant as a business, we have to be sure our guests are seeing experiences, products, and services that reflect who they are.”
