Diversity & Inclusion
We believe that differences in age, race, gender, gender identity, nationality, sexual orientation, physical ability, background and thinking style allow us to be more innovative as a company. We’re committed to maintaining a diverse and inclusive culture, from supporting associate resource groups to partnering with diversity suppliers.
Business-minded, associate centered
Our Associate Resource Groups (ARGs) give associates a way to develop professionally and personally, network with others and add value to Staples and the community. As of 2013, Staples has 15 ARG chapters — with new groups launching every year.
Every year, Staples spends hundreds of millions of dollars supporting minority– and women-owned suppliers and vendors. By working together, we help create jobs and new opportunities in the diverse communities we serve.
