As we continue in our efforts to grow TJX as a global, off-price, value retailer, we recognize that we must remain grounded in the same principles on which our Company was founded — operating with high levels of honesty and integrity, and treating others with dignity and respect. We rely on the talent and efforts of our Associates, as well as the example set by our leaders, to help us live these principles every day and foster the continued success of our Company. Ongoing engagement with key stakeholders informs enhancements to our policies, practices, and disclosures.

Our Board of Directors is responsible for overseeing the business and management of the Company. We believe our Board should be composed of highly engaged directors and that the Board's skills and experience should be aligned with the changing needs of the Company for current and future business environments. As a global company with hundreds of thousands of Associates and stores on three continents, we consider inclusion and diversity to be part of, and important to, our culture. We look for a Board that represents a diversity of backgrounds and experience, including as to gender and race/ethnicity, and that reflects a range of talents, ages, skills, viewpoints, professional experiences, geographies, and educational backgrounds.
