Diversity and Inclusion
Costco is committing $25 million to the Black Economic Development Fund by LISC (Local Initiatives Support Corporation).
Diversity isn’t something new at Costco and we’ve always been inclusive. It’s just who we are. It’s part of our culture to make sure everyone feels included and respected in all aspects of our business. We know that embracing differences is imperative to the growth of our company. It leads to more opportunities, creativity, innovation and employee satisfaction. It connects us to the communities where we do business and it even helps to increase our membership and sales. Focuses on making deposits in Black-owned banks and offering financing to minority businesses, charter schools, affordable housing projects, and athletic facilities, to support economic development in communities of color.
“We are thrilled to be a part of an investment strategy that will help some of the communities where we operate in the U.S.,” said Craig Jelinek, President and CEO. “With LISC, we are supporting a more inclusive economy, to break down race and class as barriers to opportunity and growth.”
Loyalty, respect, honor, and integrity are all traits that Costco values when hiring new employees. These are also standards held by the men and women of our military. Although armed with this character system, it’s common for veterans to find themselves questioning how their professional skill set, combined with these traits, will roll over into the private sector. We are here to help!
