Economic Opportunity

Walmart is committed to helping make retail a place of opportunity: a launching pad for people to acquire the skills and experience needed to advance in the workforce.

Our strategy is to create access to employment, provide greater stability and mobility to grow a career. This is designed to lead people from entry level jobs to greater levels of opportunity while forging a model for addressing global workforce development challenges.

Since 2015, Walmart and the Walmart Foundation have funded over $100 million to support projects designed to advance workers in retail and related sectors.
