One of our four DE&I guiding principles is to ensure there is leadership accountability and engagement, and we’re proud to announce that our CEO, Satish Malhotra has signed the CEO Action Pledge for Diversity & Inclusion.
“It is our responsibility as leaders to ensure our companies foster a diverse, equitable and inclusive workplace,” Satish said. “Therefore, I am thrilled to sign the CEO Action for Diversity and Inclusion pledge on behalf of The Container Store. Together we will pursue equal opportunities for all.”
By taking this pledge, The Container Store has committed to a specific set of actions to cultivate a trusting environment where all ideas are welcomed, and employees feel comfortable and empowered to have discussions about diversity and inclusion.
