From The Company

Founded over a century ago in 1901, Walgreen’s has a rich and colorful history of continuous improvement and innovation. From inventing the world’s first chocolate malted milkshake to the creation of one of the most popular and sophisticated mobile applications in retail shopping today, Walgreens has transformed itself into a leader within the retail and drug industry.

Walgreens, one of the nation’s largest drugstore chains, is included in the Retail Pharmacy USA Division of Walgreens Boots Alliance, Inc., a global leader in retail and wholesale pharmacy.

Walgreens has a proud legacy of valuing diversity and fostering inclusion more than 100 years strong, and we’re still living that commitment. We intend to be recognized as a “Next Practices” company for diversity and inclusion — one whose cultures, people, perspectives and workplaces reflect the current and future customers we serve while delivering superior business performance.

We’re proud to share some of the ways we’ve recently been recognized for our commitment to a diverse and inclusive culture and workplace, including:

  • 100% HRC Corporate Equality Index
  • 100 percent on the 2020 Disability Equality Index (DEI)
  • 2020 Leading Disability Employer, National Organization on Disability
  • Best of the Best: Top Supplier of Diversity Programs for African Americans, Black Equal Opportunity Employment Journal

  • Best of the Best: Top Supplier of Diversity Programs for Women, Professional Woman’s Magazine
  • Best of the Best: Top Supplier of Diversity Programs for Veterans, U.S. Veterans Magazine

Although there is still more work to be done, we have made significant progress in building an even better, more inclusive and customer-led Walgreens. To learn more about our commitment to diversity and inclusion, please visit the diversity and inclusion section of our company site.
