HOME DEPOT RECOGNIZED AS A TOP INNOVATOR IN DIVERSITY & INCLUSION

October 26, 2017

With more than 400,000 associates, The Home Depot has long worked to create a diverse and inclusive environment for its associates and customers from all walks of life. In fact, more than 45 percent of new hires are ethnically diverse.

That’s why Mogul, an online platform enabling women worldwide to connect, share information and access knowledge, has named Home Depot a Top Innovator in Diversity & Inclusion.

Selection and order of this list was determined by the following criteria: 

  • Percentage of executive leadership positions held by minorities
  • Resources and groups available for employees
  • Social contribution

The company partners with community-based organizations such as the NSH (National Society of Hispanics), NAWIC (National Association of Women in Construction) and NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) to help facilitate hiring, retaining and growing diverse talent.

The company’s diversity and inclusion practices place priority on inclusiveness, associate retention, supplier and community partnerships.
