Board and C-Suite Gender Diversity

Challenge

Recognizing that gender diversity within an organization spurs greater innovation, revenue growth and strategic-critical thinking Best Buy was thoughtful to make sure the best talent available was selected for Board and C­ Suite leadership roles.

Actions

  • Best Buy's CEO and Board of Directors set a clear goal to improve gender diversity in our open Board positions and when C-Suite positions opened
  • Searches for talent included our existing employee base and through an expanded search process for external talent.

Outcomes

Best Buy currently has a Board of Directors that is 40% female and 50% of the CEO's direct reports are women.

Best Buy strives to unleash the power of our people and utilize their unique talents, experiences, beliefs and backgrounds to create an engaging work environment best suited to fulfill our mission of helping our customers pursue their passions and enrich their lives with the help of technology. Doing so is fundamental to our long-term success and achieved through a diverse and inclusive workplace. Our commitment to this work starts with me and includes our entire Executive Team.

Best Buy is honored to join the CEO Action for Diversity pledge and supports collective efforts to advance diversity and inclusion in the workplace.
