Racial Equity and Inclusion

Everyone benefits when we create a more equitable world. This belief led us to address potential disparities through business initiatives and philanthropy in the communities we serve. We are doing this by creating opportunity and inclusion for all at Walmart. We are also advancing equity by using our core business capabilities to create shared value and complementing this work with philanthropic investments to drive systemic change.

Our Commitment

"To influence and lead change, we are going to use the power of Walmart to invest resources and develop strategies to increase fairness, equity, and justice in aspects of everyday life."

- Doug McMillon, President and CEO, Walmart Inc.

Supplier Inclusion

At Walmart, we believe an inclusive supply chain helps us meet the unique needs of our diverse customer and member base. We’re focused on creating opportunity and well-being by helping enable a diverse array of businesses to thrive by identifying resources to help them grow with us.

Walmart and the Walmart Foundation committed $100 million over five years through the Walmart.Org Center for Racial Equity to complement the societal impact of Walmart business initiatives. The Center aims to advance racial equity within four focus areas: finance, health, education and criminal justice.

Constituent Relations

As the store of the community, we create opportunity through partnerships with community organizations, neighborhood churches and local businesses.​ Our Constituent Relations, Public Affairs and Public Policy teams develop best-in-class relationships that help transform communities and build a better Walmart.

Shared Value Approach

We believe a shared value approach that seeks to address societal issues maximizes value for our associates, business, customers, and communities where we operate. In 2020, Walmart established shared value networks to help advance equity in the areas of criminal justice, health, education, and finance, which align to two workstreams: Opportunity and Well-Being. We have launched more than twenty shared value initiatives across our business.
