INCREASING ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY
In addition to creating development and advancement opportunities for our 2.2 million associates around the world, Walmart also creates economic opportunity for people and businesses all along our supply chains. Walmart and the Walmart Foundation support programs that advance women’s economic mobility, create advancement opportunities for people in retail and related sectors, promote local manufacturing, champion supplier diversity and help suppliers and small businesses grow.
One of society’s greatest challenges is helping workers gain the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in the jobs of today and prepare for the jobs of tomorrow.
We use the power of our purchase order as a development tool in two ways: to promote diverse suppliers and to support small producers in emerging markets.
