About Us:

As a Fortune 50 company with more than 350,000 team members worldwide, Target is an iconic brand and one of America's leading retailers.

Working at Target means the opportunity to help all families discover the joy of everyday life. Caring for our communities is woven into who we are, and we invest in the places we collectively live, work and play. We prioritize relationships, fuel and develop talent by creating growth opportunities, and succeed as one Target team. At our core, our purpose is ingrained in who we are, what we value, and how we work. It's how we care, grow, and win together.

Are you ready to bring your passion and expertise to Target to help cultivate a powerfully positive local and global presence? For the experienced corporate responsibility pro with a strong and time-tested background in non-profit leadership, a role in Corporate Responsibility (CR) could be that just-right fit. Join our team where business savvy meets the greater good and you'll soon see-this is about so much more than volunteerism. You'll rise to the challenge of maintaining Target's good stewardship of the environment, its resources and its key partnerships with other organizations. As part of CR, the Target Foundation focuses on where to best allocate funds to support various programs and initiatives. Or you might assist with sustainable global sourcing practices, and projects that foster environmental responsibility and ways to minimize our footprint at both the macro and store levels. Whatever your role with CR, you'll help influence how Target leverages its distinctive brand and unparalleled resources to set the bar for responsible, sustainable and charitable business practices.

In this newly created role, you will drive the alignment and execution of Target's Racial Equity Action and Change (REACH) strategy - our commitment to advance racial equity and help fuel economic prosperity for Black Americans. The successful candidate will have passion for and a demonstrated commitment to pursuing racial equity through strategic partnerships and collaborations that address root causes of systemic inequalities in the communities we serve. We are looking for someone who will:

  • Champion and oversee our Communities Pillar's strategy within REACH, a catalyst for transformative change to eliminate barriers, advance opportunity and equity and accelerate the company's path forward to promote sustainable economic progress and impact in Black communities.
  • Develop and execute an annual investment approach, focused on Target's team members, guests and communities, to ensure strategic investment of our 5-year, $100M commitment to support Black-led nonprofits and businesses is realized.


  • Work collaboratively with Community Impact Directors to ensure a strategic, collaborative approach with intentional intersectionality of work to benefit Black communities, aligned to our Target Forward Ambitions. This will require a solid understanding of systems change, place-based and national philanthropic grantmaking and investing.
  • Lead development of administrative and reporting activities for the REACH PMO including, but not limited to storytelling, creating and managing timely, detailed reporting to REACH Committee, other internal executives, shareholders and our BOD, as well as capturing and highlighting current successes and pending, pipeline investments.
  • In partnership with Director, Corporate Citizenship, serve as an internal spokesperson and REACH SME.
  • Proactive engagement with internal partners and team members:
  • Regularly update the REACH Committee and CR leadership team on progress related to the REACH strategic goals performance.


  • Develop relationships and collaborate with key business leaders (e.g., DEI, External Engagement, HR, Government Affairs, Legal, Merchandising, TA, etc.) and other colleagues to influence, partner and co-create relative to our aspiration to ensure integration, coordination and compliance of the REACH agenda to help advance the work.
  • Drive the portfolio development process, including RFP development, grantee identification, program design, and portfolio selection:
  • Develop measurement plans to evaluate the effectiveness of the portfolio, participate in the evaluation of the results and iterate approach as needed based on findings
  • Direct the efficient flow of grants through their life cycles, ensuring proposal and reporting compliance, adherence to grant agreements, and timely and accurate processing
  • Execute vetting process and initial due diligence for identified non-profit/NGO partners


  • Manage portfolio budget allocated to focus areas
  • Seek and apply best and emerging practices, within and beyond the industry, to adapt, as appropriate, for our objectives.
  • Contribute to and maintain a positive team culture by demonstrating behaviors consistent with Target's values of Inclusivity, Connection and Drive.
