Walgreens Boots Alliance has announced the release of its 2020-2021 Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DE&I) Report, titled “Our Values. Our People. Our Differences,” which provides updates on the company’s DE&I commitments as well as progress on leadership diversity. For the first time, the report also includes U.S. demographic data by race.
The report explains how WBA initiatives such as the Leadership Accountability Model, which ties a portion of incentive pay for bonus-eligible employees to the company’s performance on diversity goals, are helping to increase inclusivity and representation of women and people of color. The report also highlights steps WBA has taken to address vaccine equity during the pandemic, from mobile clinics to community partnerships aimed at increasing vaccine awareness, education and accessibility.
“Our mission is to ingrain diversity, equity and inclusion into everything we do, and that mission is resonating throughout our company,” says Roz Brewer, chief executive officer, WBA. “I am so proud of the work we’ve done to expand understanding, increase curiosity, and connect with each other and our customers in ways that truly lead to an inclusive environment. We are committed to continuing to improve this work in the coming year and beyond.”
