Diversity in Retail is Devoted to Increasing Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Across Retail

We believe that through collaboration we can amplify the impact of individual EDI initiatives and together we can have a bigger, louder voice for the good of the Retail sector.

Our joint mission with WiHTL is to support companies across the Retail, Hospitality, Travel and Leisure industry to create diverse and inclusive environments and positively impact 5 million employees globally by 2030.

What We Do

Advocate, inspire, raise awareness

We conduct research and provide equity, diversity and inclusion content that is relevant and inspiring.

Share and learn from others

We nurture collaboration and sharing across the industry, creating multiple opportunities to interact and identify best practices that work in the Retail sector.

Co-create solutions

We support companies and executives in building a diverse talent pipeline through cross-industry leadership development programmes.

Support Organisations on their journey

We create bespoke solutions for our members when they need additional or deeper support to progress their EDI journey, driving organisational growth.

Our Collaboration Community reaches over 1.3 million employees

Be a part of our ever-growing Collaboration Community of companies and individuals committed to creating more diverse and inclusive workplaces.  

We believe that no single company can make progress with the inclusion agenda on its own.  Through collaboration we are able to have a greater impact on progressing EDI in Retail and in society as a whole.
