To continue building a Northwest Arkansas where everyone feels welcome, Walmart announced a 3-year, $5 million investment in regional diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) programs.

The $5 million investment follows a $100 million commitment over five years the company announced in 2020 with its Center for Racial Equity that is focused on eradicating systematic disparities experienced by African American communities in the U.S. social systems of finance, health, education and criminal justice.
