Diversity and Inclusion

Apart from extraordinary coffee, Starbucks has made a business out of human connections, community involvement and the celebration of cultures.

At Starbucks, we strive to create a culture that values and respect diversity and inclusion. We expect to be a leader in diversity and inclusion, from our partners in the field to our senior leadership teams.

To help make our goals become reality, we have integrated diversity and inclusion into the core of our leadership competencies. We expect that all leaders within Starbucks practice behaviors that demonstrate inclusion. We will reach out to leverage diverse points of view, talents and capabilities. We will work and think across teams, functions and businesses; across markets, channels and organizations; across cultures and communities; across physical and digital spaces.

The goals of the Diversity and Inclusion team include building a diverse workforce, increasing cultural competencies, shaping a culture of inclusion and developing a diverse network of suppliers.
