Supplier Diversity


At TJX, honesty, integrity, and treating each other with dignity and respect live at the core of our culture. These principles help us deliver on our commitments to our Associates, customers, and communities and build strong relationships with suppliers. Inclusion and diversity have also long been a priority at TJX, and we recognize more than ever that we need to continue working to do more and be better. Our Supplier Diversity Program has been one more way we can support TJX’s commitment to inclusion and diversity.

Our Supplier Diversity Program is dedicated to broadening supplier options for not-for-resale goods and services in the U.S. Since its inception in 1992, our program has helped provide opportunities to businesses owned by minorities, women, veterans, LGBTQ+ individuals, and persons with disabilities. This, in turn, has helped us identify vendors for mutually beneficial relationships and has promoted economic development in our suppliers’ local communities.





Diverse Suppliers Quickly Adapt to Provide PPE to Stores

In 2020, the world experienced unprecedented challenges brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic. TJX continues to prioritize the health and well-being of our Associates and customers. We made many necessary changes across our stores, distribution centers, fulfillment centers, and offices to help us operate more safely in light of the pandemic. As we adopted new health and wellness protocols in the business, two of our long-term diverse suppliers, both women-owned businesses, quickly adapted to increased demand, helping us provide personal protective equipment and other necessary materials, like facemasks, cleaning supplies, and protective shields.

Supplier Requirements


To support TJX’s goal of providing great value to our customers every day, our suppliers must demonstrate:

Certification Requirements


While we also work with suppliers providing not-for-resale goods and services that self-identify as diverse-owned businesses, to participate in our Supplier Diversity Program, suppliers must be certified as a diverse-owned business by one of the following:


Suppliers certified by an organization listed above can register on our supplier diversity portal, and we encourage self-identified diverse suppliers to complete the certification process. While certification and/or registering with TJX does not guarantee a business opportunity, it helps us better understand suppliers’ capabilities and experience. We contact suppliers that meet our criteria if we have an appropriate, matching need.
