Kohl’s New Diversity & Inclusion Strategy Focuses on Our People, Our Customers, and Our Community


Kohl’s is committed to creating an environment where everyone feels a sense of equity, where diversity is valued at all levels, and where inclusion is evident across our business. To support this, the company created a new Diversity and Inclusion framework, which addresses three pillars: Our People, Our Customers, and Our Community.

The mission of our Diversity and Inclusion strategy is to fulfill lives through equity, diversity and inclusion. We’re embedding our diversity and inclusion strategy throughout our business by being intentional about our programs and practices and holding ourselves accountable with measurable goals and results. 

Our People: We strive to be purposeful in attracting, growing and engaging more diverse talent while giving associates equitable opportunities for career growth. Along this journey, we're championing the value and strength of our differences to foster a workplace of inclusion and belonging.

Our Customers: We strive to celebrate our differences and help more customers see themselves reflected in our brands. Along this journey, we're working to offer culturally-relevant products, designs and storytelling that is meaningful to diverse customers.

Our Community: We strive to drive economic empowerment through conversations, programs and partnerships that improve quality of life in underserved communities. Along this journey, we're embracing opportunities to address racial disparities.

In support of our community efforts, Kohl’s recently announced that it is strengthening its commitment to the Milwaukee community with a $1 million donation to five nonprofit organizations that serve diverse communities.

We look forward to sharing more goals and progress throughout our journey. To learn more about Kohl’s commitment to diversity and inclusion, or to access Kohl’s 2019 CSR Report, visit Corporate.Kohls.com
