Earlier this year, CEO Brian Cornell shared our team’s steadfast commitment to stand with Black families and fight against racism. Target kicked off the work with a $10 million pledge to advance social justice and support our communities—but that was just the start.
Since then, Target has established REACH—our Racial Equity Action and Change committee—to create an action plan to guide our way. The six founding members are senior leaders from across Target with diverse perspectives and expertise across the business.
In a letter to the Target team this morning, Brian and the REACH committee shared where they’ll start.
“REACH will focus specifically on how we can drive lasting impact for our Black team members and guests. To determine where to focus, we’ve spent time with many of you, spoken with our guests, reviewed research and tapped into our partners to align around four areas of focus: Team, Guests, Communities and Civic Engagement and Public Policy.”
As REACH’s work moves forward, our company wide commitment to diversity and inclusion remains. Our teams will continue pushing for progress on our existing goals across a wide range of initiatives.
