Kohl’s is proud to be recognized as one of Seramount’s 2022 Top Companies for Multicultural Women for the third year, an honor recognizing companies that create and use best practices in hiring, retaining and promoting multicultural women in the United States.
Since 2003, Seramount’s Best Companies for Multicultural Women has tracked corporations’ progress in creating cultures that encourage multicultural women to join and rise through the ranks. The Best Companies for Multicultural Women results are determined based on representation; hiring, attrition and promotion rates; recruitment, retention and advancement programs; and company culture.
“We are thrilled to be recognized as a top company for multicultural women by Seramount for the third year,” said Michelle A. Banks, Kohl’s chief diversity & inclusion officer. “We understand that embedding equity, diversity and inclusion across the business requires an ongoing journey of listening, learning and taking action. As Kohl’s continues to take action to deliver meaningful change for the good of our people, we pledge to continue to increase diversity across our associate population to better reflect our customers and our country. Understanding and embracing those differences for Kohl’s associates is not just the right thing to do, it is critical in creating an inclusive workplace.”
