PEOPLE

Ground-up change starts with us.

We are working to become an Anti-Racist organization

TOMS will always stand for a better tomorrow—one in which all humanity thrives.

We recognize our responsibility to our employees, our customers, and our communities to actively combat systemic racism, as well as policies that lead to inequities. And we stand in solidarity with Black, Indigenous Peoples, People of Color, and all marginalized people.

Additionally, TOMS’ commitment to becoming an Anti-Racist organization is both enduring and ongoing. Every TOMS employee participates in making TOMS the Diverse, Equitable, Inclusive, Anti-Racist organization we strive to be.

After all, none of us can truly thrive until all of us can thrive.

And it’s something we’re consistently working on. Here are just a few of the steps we’ve taken this year.

  • We engaged a DEIA consultant to provide Anti-Racism training to our leadership and staff and help evaluate our hiring practices.
  • We created a Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Anti-Racist (DEIA) Advisory Council who help guide decision-making at TOMS, providing a diverse set of voices, insights, and perspectives.
  • We hosted an “Anti-Racism Day of Learning” that was attended by all employees and we will continue this annually.
  • We committed to reporting progress on our DEIA initiatives annually, starting with the TOMS 2021 Impact Report.

We support our employees

Our employees are passionate about our mission, and we think it’s so important that they have plenty of opportunities to get to know our partners and their work firsthand. So, we’ve built them into our company culture.

Tomorrows Project

Our employees are some of our best, most passionate ambassadors and we want to engage that passion. So every other month, employees can apply for a $10,000 grant, which they can give to an organization they’re involved with.

Giving Tuesday

Once a year, we dedicate a full workday to volunteering with our partners, taking part in activities that bring us closer to the work and to the communities they serve.

We’re mindful of who we partner with to make our products

As a proud member of the Fair Labor Association, we work hard to identify long-term suppliers that share our values and conduct their businesses ethically—engaging with workers, ensuring safe working conditions, and demonstrating a strong sense of environmental responsibility. Third-party auditors help us make sure that factories continue to meet our requirements, year after year.
