Walgreens Diverse Supplier Spotlight
Lorenzo’s Frozen Pudding
Genesis Bencivenga Sr.

After taking her father’s pudding recipe from the family kitchen into national stores, Genesis Bencivenga Sr., CEO and co-founder of Lorenzo’s Frozen Pudding, overcame setbacks with support from the Walgreens Top Shelf program.

After graduating from the program, Bencivenga credits it with filling the gaps that limited her first two go-rounds. Top Shelf provided her with access to the capital vital for growth, ultimately giving her distribution at Walgreens with a six-store pilot that grew to more than 70 stores a year later. Bencivenga says, “What did I get out of Top Shelf? More than anything, it was relationships that are now creating my network. Everybody knows it’s all about who you know, and Top Shelf has serious advisors to help teach you what they're good at.”

Urban Hydration
Psyche Terry

Started in 2009, Urban Hydration is a trailblazer in plant-based clean beauty. The brand was created by a new mom and dad who wanted affordable, sustainable care that worked well for the entire family.  

Psyche Terry, CEO and Founder of Urban Hydration, and Walgreens have worked together to introduce her products nationwide.

“Partnering with Walgreens has been really instrumental to our business," she says. "We rose to the challenge of being in a large and favored retailer and our customers are happier for it. We’ve noticed that, from our buy team to field sales to the supplier diversity team, our business is poised in great relationships with each of them. Here is one business partner I can say partners big and supports you along the way!” 

Sugar Bliss
Teresa Ging

Founded in 2007 by former equity research analyst Teresa Ging, Sugar Bliss is a cupcake and bakery company based in downtown Chicago. Through the Top Shelf program with the Women’s Business Development Center (WBDC), the relationship between Walgreens and Sugar Bliss formed. 

When joining national retail, Sugar Bliss credits Walgreens for the opportunity to expand.

“We are grateful Walgreens was the first retailer to partner with Sugar Bliss, a women- and minority-owned bakery," Ging says. "Walgreens commitment to supplier diversity and sponsorship of programs such as Top Shelf with the WBDC gave Sugar Bliss the opportunity to launch four varieties of cookies in Walgreens stores. In addition, this opportunity has opened the doors for Sugar Bliss to expand into more retailers and eventually become a nationwide brand.”

Walgreens Legal Team Spotlight

At WBA, our goal is to embed DEI into our DNA. Across the enterprise, departments and divisions increasingly demonstrate the importance of DEI within our culture. 

In 2019, the Walgreens Legal department established a cross-functional Legal DEI team to enhance its longstanding DEI efforts. For example, the team has proudly partnered with the National Association of Minority and Women Owned Law Firms (NAMWOLF), National Employment Law Council and Coalition of Women's Initiatives in Law to identify and engage diverse law firms on U.S. and global legal matters. In 2022, Walgreens Legal department was thrilled to receive the NAMWOLF Annual Diversity Achievement Award, an honor that recognizes corporations and public entities that have exhibited outstanding achievement in increasing minority and women-owned law firm participation in Walgreens legal work.

For over a decade, Walgreens legal department team members have volunteered their time to mentor high school students in various community outreach programs, including Legal Prep Charter Academy, a charter high school in Chicago that fosters a commitment to legal careers for their students and “Street Law,” a program created and administered by the Chicago Chapter of the Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC). A true DEI initiative, Street Law aims to increase awareness and enthusiasm for the legal profession and model a career in law, specifically corporate law, for students. Walgreens attorneys and paralegals have enthusiastically embraced these programs, sharing their love of the law and legal expertise with hundreds of high school students. Volunteer attorneys and paralegals get involved with Legal Prep Charter Academy or Street Law by planning, leading or moderating a "hands-on-lawyering" workshop or acting as ambassadors for Walgreens. 

Better Together

We cannot accomplish our goals without partners. We are proud to work alongside some of the most dedicated and talented organizations around the world.

The Healthcare Businesswomen's Association (HBA) is a global nonprofit organization committed to achieving gender parity in leadership positions, providing equitable practices that enable organizations to realize the full potential of women and facilitate business connections to accelerate career advancement in their fields. Walgreens proudly partners with HBA to offer membership benefits to our team members and empower women at Walgreens.

For the sixth year in a row, Walgreens has received a 100 score on the 2022 Disability Equality Index® (DEI), a joint initiative by Disability:IN and the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD). Through our partnership with Disability:IN, WBA sponsors the group's annual conference, engages in workshops, committees and other events and provides thought leadership on disability strategy and employment.

In 2022, WBA partnered with BYP – a network of 150,000+ Black professionals named one of the Top 50 Fastest Growing Start-Ups in the UK. Boots and No7 Beauty Company work with BYP to connect Black talent with career opportunities and mentoring. Through the partnership, we co-create content and help build a workforce that reflects and understands the communities in which we work.

Out & Equal is the premier organization working exclusively on LGBTQ+ workplace equality, helping LGBTQ+ people thrive and support organizations creating a culture of belonging for all. Walgreens partners with Out & Equal to provide LGBTQ+ executive leadership development, comprehensive DEI training and consultation and professional networking opportunities that build inclusive and welcoming work environments.
