Walmart Labs

Our Diversity & Inclusion Journey

Imagine working in an environment where one experiment can catapult an entire industry toward a smarter future. That’s what we do at Walmart Labs. We’re a team of 5,000+ software engineers, data scientists, designers and product managers within Walmart, the world’s largest retailer, delivering innovations that improve how our customers shop and our enterprise operates.. A core philosophy at Walmart is operating with everyday low cost (EDLC). We use technology to operate smarter so that we can deliver everyday low prices (EDLP) to customers. We’re changing the way the world shops

If you’re thinking ‘scale’, think bigger and don’t stop there. Take a regular day at Walmart Labs and match that with 270 million customers a week, 11,700 stores under 65 banners in 28 countries. With fiscal year 2018 revenue of $500.3 billion, Walmart employs approximately 2.3 million associates worldwide. As our customers evolve and adapt, we are taking it a few notches further here. We’re changing what customers can expect from the experience of shopping, from the physical stores, to mobile, social and even online; we’re not just ready for the future of shopping, we’re creating it.

Our teams develop industry-changing innovations to make in-store and online shopping a more seamless experience for millions of daily shoppers

At Walmart, we believe we are best equipped to help our associates, customers and the communities we serve live better when we really know them. That means understanding, respecting and valuing diversity – unique styles, experiences, identities, ideas and opinions – while being inclusive of all people. 

'At the heart of Walmart Labs’ organizational values, lies diversity and inclusion. Our women leaders are continuously inspiring other women to aspire to a career in technology and break the barriers. At Walmart Labs, we look forward to have on board more women in tech.

A truly inclusive workplace culture is one where every associate feels empowered to bring their authentic self to work every day. These engaged associates are happier, and they perform at their best. As a result, they provide better service to our customers and members by creating a clean, fast and friendly shopping experience. When we get it right, the customers come back. That’s inclusion.

Our U.S. workforce of more than 1.5 million associates consists of 22 percent African American associates, 14 percent Hispanic or Latino American associates, 4 percent Asian American associates, 1 percent Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander and 1 percent American Indian or Alaskan Native. 55 percent of all associates are women, which includes 43% of our managers and 31 percent of our officers.

Women’s Resource Council (WRC) is a group of women and men who cultivate an inclusive atmosphere and act as a forum to Connect, Develop and Advocate for our more than 4,500 members. They aim to support the company’s vision of making Walmart the best place for women to work at all levels. They work to continue the development of a diverse and inclusive work environment by supporting their members and providing resources to develop the talent pipeline, while integrating their membership further with business objectives to drive a competitive edge for Walmart.
