Supplier Diversity

At TJX, operating responsibly is part of our DNA. For us, this responsibility includes valuing diversity throughout our supplier community.

Managed by our Global Sourcing and Procurement group, 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 us access procurement opportunities with businesses owned by minorities, women, veterans, LGBTQ individuals, and persons with disabilities. This, in turn, has helped us identify the best vendors for mutually beneficial relationships. Expanding relationships with a diverse supplier base also encourages economic development in our suppliers’ local communities.

In 2019, we continued a project designed to support owners of diverse businesses local to our Massachusetts home office through mentorships with TJX Associates. Through this program, we aim to build relationships and support diverse suppliers for continued success. We were also pleased to recently join the Massachusetts LGBT Chamber of Commerce as a founding member. Our memberships in this, and other organizations, help us continue our commitment to creating inclusive relationships and drive economic impact in our local communities.
