Strategy Into Action: Exceeding $1 Billion of Spend Toward Our DE&I Action Plan, Announcing an Additional $3 Billion
When we announced our $1 billion Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DE&I) Action Plan in October of 2020, we sought to build on our foundation of supporting diverse representation and equal opportunities for our colleagues, customers, and communities. As of March 2022, we exceeded $1 billion in spending toward our DE&I Action Plan, ahead of schedule. Building on our progress, we now plan to spend an additional $3 billion toward DE&I initiatives—for an ambition to spend $4 billion in total from late 2020 through the end of 2025. The majority of additional spend will continue to be allocated to underrepresented-owned suppliers.
