Diversity, Equality, and Inclusion
Ross continues to work to address long-standing inequalities and injustices and bring about meaningful change. Not only are we committed to ensuring a diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplace, as outlined in the “Empowering Our Associates” section, we also want to support community efforts to combat hate and discrimination, increase public education, and advocate for progress.
Throughout the year, we provided support to several nonprofit organizations serving specific communities, such as Human Rights Campaign, Stop AAPI Hate, the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund, and more. In addition, Ross and its Customers donated nearly $5 million to our national partners BGCA and First Book, whose work helps remove barriers to quality education and serves young people from diverse backgrounds all across the country.
Ross also supports social justice organizations through our Matching Gift Program. Ross matches donations made by full-time Associates to qualified organizations—up to $500 per year.
