4A message from DougI hope you’ve seen firsthand how important diversity and inclusion are to ourcompany. We want that to be clear by what we say but more importantly by what wedo. I’m proud of the intentional work we’ve done over the past decade to broadenour talent pool and diversify our leadership ranks. Now more than ever, Walmartreflects our diverse customer base, and that makes us a better company. We’ve alsodemonstrated that we’re willing to speak out on behalf of diversity and inclusion,particularly when we need to support our company’s core value of respect for theindividual.Doug McMillonPresident and CEO,Wal-Mart Stores, Inc.As I think about the year ahead, two of the words that are on my mind areopportunity and inclusion. There is a very real and meaningful debate happeningaround the world these days around opportunity. People everywhere want a fair shotin life, and they want to see a path up for themselves and their families. Walmart has arole to play here. We offer jobs at all levels, training and advancement opportunities,and the chance to reach the middle class and beyond. Walmart should be a placewhere anyone can grow, advance, and exceed their own expectations.In addition to a path up, we owe our associates a work environment that is inclusive of all people. We want to make sure that the very besttalent is drawn to Walmart and that all of our associates feel valued and respected here. We will continue to build a diverse and inclusivecompany that allows all associates — regardless of gender, race, sexual orientation, disability or other characteristics — to bring theirwhole selves to work so they can contribute at their best.We can make a difference in people’s lives if we have the right individual and collective attitudes and the willingness to take action. I’m soproud of the progress we’ve made. And together, we will make this company even better.Thanks for your interest in our business. Please share your views with us on how we can be doing more.Sincerely,Doug

5A message from SharonOne of Walmart’s core basic beliefs is respect for every individual—our customers, our associates, oursuppliers, and our stakeholders. As the world’s largest employer, we have a responsibility for setting ahigh standard of inclusive behavior. We believe inclusion propels innovation and business success.We open our doors every day around the world to welcome all customers in our stores. We provideaccess and affordability to the daily necessities of living. We expect that our associates treat allcustomers respectfully regardless of race, religion, gender identity or other personal characteristic.Sharon OrloppGlobal Chief Diversity Officerand SVP Coporate PeopleTo me, diversity is like the ingredients to a recipe. To make a good dish, you need to have differentingredients that work together. At Walmart, we want people who come from different places, think indifferent ways, and look and act differently from one another. Inclusion is how we mix those ingredientstogether – it’s the environment that we create, the real culture of the company. Inclusion is grounded inrespect for the individual and requires us to value and recognize the contribution of every associate.In addition to providing a diverse and inclusive work environment, we provide unparalleledopportunities and access to jobs. In February, we announced a significant investment in our U.S.associates with 1 billion committed to workforce training and a new starting wage of 9 effective April2015—and the opportunity for at least a 10 starting wage next year. Our investment includes enhanced training, scheduling choices and access to educationalopportunities for our associates.From associates in senior leadership roles to our store and club associates, we have provided pathways to opportunities for tens of thousands of women andpeople of color each year. In 2014, more than 228,000 associates received promotions in Walmart U.S. alone – 54 percent of them were women and 40 percentpeople of color. From taking their first job to stepping into their first leadership role – we are proud of being the destination for opportunity for all associates.Our associates make the difference. With these new opportunities, there will be no better place in retail to learn, grow, and build a career than Walmart. Webelieve that no matter who you are or what your background is, at Walmart you will find an environment that gives you an opportunity to rise to the top.Sincerely,Sharon

9Veterans Welcome HomeCommitmentIn May 2015, Walmart announced the next step in its VeteransWelcome Home Commitment by guaranteeing a job offer toany eligible U.S. veteran honorably discharged from activeduty since the commitment’s original launch on Memorial Day2013. The previous commitment was for veterans within 12months off active duty. In addition to the Veterans WelcomeHome Commitment, Walmart is expanding its 2013 projectionof hiring 100,000 veterans by 2018, increasing the projection to250,000 veterans by the end of 2020. Since Memorial Day 2013,Walmart has hired more than 92,000 veterans, and nearly 8,000have already been promoted to jobs with higher pay and greaterresponsibility.Also, through a 20 million philanthropic investment, Walmartand the Walmart Foundation are working with private and publicsector organizations to support veteran reintegration.Heather BriceK E E P I N G O U R M I L I TA R Y FA M I LY P R O M I S EWhen Heather Brice, an assistant manager at Walmart got married,she knew her husband’s career in the military meant there was a goodchance they would move far – and potentially often. But she wascomforted when she learned from her Neighborhood Market managerin Beaverton, Ore., that Walmart is just as committed to militaryspouses as it is to active service members and veterans.A few months later, Walmart made good on that commitment whenHeather’s husband, Ryan, was assigned to Idaho to serve his firstduty station as a pharmacy tech within the Air Force. The companypromptly connected Heather with a position at a Walmart Supercenterin Jerome, Idaho, just 30 minutes from their new home.“When we were waiting to find out where my husband would betransferred, he was worried about me keeping my job. But I wasn’t. I’vealways known that my company would support me,” Heather said.

10PLANNING FOR THE FUTUREGlobal recruiting story - ChileTaeko NirasawaD I V E R S I F Y I N G T H E I N T E R N AT I O N A LLEGAL PIPELINEE M B R AC E D F O R W H O I A MLast year, we identified an opportunity to strengthen the WalmartLegal department by diversifying the pipeline of attorneys servingour international markets. Through conversations with internal andexternal stakeholders in our Latin American markets, we determinedEnglish proficiency and professional networking opportunities and skillsrepresented the most significant hurdles for diverse law students seekingjobs.In October 2014, we launched a first-of-its-kind pilot program aimed atdelivering on this specific need and, in turn, building a stronger pipelineof diverse legal talent in Chile. Walmart Legal – International, with thesupport of Walmart Legal in Chile, pledged to provide English lessonsand create clerkships for 12 law students from local universities for threeyears. We’re also collaborating with Walmart legal departments in our LatinAmerican markets and other corporations to incorporate this model inother countries in the future as well as in other regions of the world.As a mother to three daughters, Taeko Nirasawacertainly has priorities beyond her careeras manager of the Seiyu store in Kamisugi,Japan. But she says she has always beenencouraged to tap into her point of viewas a mother and housewife to strengthenher teams and grow her career.“When you build a great team, it’s alot like having another family,” Taekosaid. “If you respect your fellowassociates, you’ll create a greatteam. I make sure I greet them every day, talk with them and, most important,listen. I’m here to help them grow and accomplish their goals, not just myown.”Hired into the Endo chain in 1987, Taeko became an assistant manager at theKita-Sendai store in 2008 and was promoted to co-manager by 2010. Sincebecoming store manager in Kamisugi last year, she has become focused onhelping other female associates to become managers.“I’ve been embraced for who I am and I want to be a role model for others,”she said. “I motivate the people I work with because I know anyone can makea career here with hard work.”

11Walmart U.S. jobsAt Walmart U.S., we’re proud of the jobs and opportunities we offerour associates – but we knew we could do better. So we took a stepback and listened to what our associates were telling us. In additionto new development and training programs, we’re making a numberof changes to enhance the job and advancement opportunities weprovide. We have raised the starting wage, are piloting a programto create more choice in scheduling and are introducing a trainingprogram to help deliver the skills our associates need to be successfulin their jobs and advance their careers.

12I N C LU S I V E E N V I R O N M E N TI choose Walmart because this is a place where I matter, whereI am supported and encouraged to be me.“When I think of inclusion – inclusion is a real call to action, and it causes youto actively listen – to your associates, your members, your customers – and make sure that we’re reflective ofwho’s shopping our units. Inclusion is critical to our success. It will help us maximize our business, but at thesame time, it makes us better as a company.Today we really operate in a very complex and diverse global environment. And inclusive leaders arethose who are able to drive performance and innovation while managing change. And while you’remanaging that change, it’s about the relationships and the talent that you build around it.It also means really being adaptable. Again, it’s about listening and really managing theworkplace of the future. We need to create a culture that’s not only diverse but can leveragethe differences in our people. It’s critical to who we want to be in the future.” Rosalind G.

14I N C LU S I V E E N V I R O N M E N TInaugural African American ForumIn July 2014, the Global Office of Diversity, in partnership with the African American Officers’Caucus (AAOC) and the UNITY Associate Resource Group, hosted our inaugural AfricanAmerican Forum (AAF). It is no secret that associates make the difference in our customers’and members’ lives every day by working hard to deliver on our company promise.The African American Forum (AAF), as part of the African American Talent Strategy, wasdesigned to push that idea even further.The theme of the two-day event was “Make the Difference” in the business, the participants’careers and for African American talent at Walmart. The associates in attendance walkedaway from the event with a true ownership of their careers. There were over 600 inattendance, including the approximately 500 invited participants, executive leadership,board members and external guests.Throughout the event, participants: Had an opportunity to network with each other, company officersand board members Learned about AA140, an ongoing project designed to ensurewe are meeting the needs of our African American customersthrough innovation in merchandising, marketing and customerexperience Attended breakout sessions led by a panel of AAOC memberswhere they learned about panel members’ personal journeys,experiences and views about winning at Walmart, and wereable to share, whether sharing issues they’ve faced, or askingquestions Heard messages from board members, the CEO and threenationally recognized speakers on relevant and timely business,career and personal development topicsThis Forum has been an exciting new stepon our diversity & inclusion journey.In addition to providing access to others of a similar backgroundand the benefits of their experience at Walmart, through the AfricanAmerican Forum we were able to provide unmatched developmentand exposure to associates across the country. This developmentfurthers Walmart’s efforts in growing the representation andinclusion of diverse managers in our senior level leadership positionsthroughout the company. Building on the success of this event, wewill be hosting the inaugural Hispanic Forum, August 5-6, 2015.

15Interfaith in the WorkplaceUnconscious Bias PilotOn the U.S. National Day of Prayer in May 2014, the Global Officeof Diversity hosted an interfaith summit that highlighted theimportance of inclusion of associates from all creeds, faithsand beliefs. The Summit featured a keynote speaker and paneldiscussion, providing an opportunity for associates to share theirdiverse religious backgrounds and how faith can often intersectthe workplace. The Summit has spawned continuous discussionregarding inclusion of associates of all beliefs and faiths, includingcontinued conversation about the increased visibility and acceptanceof agnostic/atheist associates at Walmart.In the Global Office of Diversity, we are working to develop a robust inclusioneducation curriculum. The first step we’re taking is around the topic ofunconscious bias, which occurs when individuals’ preferences for objects andpeople at a subconscious level unintentionally influence both behavior anddecision-making.This year, we began an unconscious bias training pilot within our Logisticsdivision. The pilot kicked off with face-to-face training of roughly sixty U.S.Logistics leaders in two Texas distribution centers over a two-day, foursession period. Throughout the year, the same training will be deliveredto approximately 4,000 salaried management associates utilizing multipledelivery methods – face-to-face, eLearning modules and WebEx virtuallearning.Through increased awareness, understanding and unlocking the filters ofunconscious biases that affect our everyday decisions, we aim to improvebusiness results by fostering an inclusive culture that helps increase retention,employee engagement, inclusive leadership, innovation and creativity.THE U.S. MENTORING PROGRAM IN 2014TOTAL NUMBEROF MENTORS73,552Women represent54%of the mentoredassociatesTOTAL NUMBER OFASSOCIATES MENTORED239,613People of colorrepresent35%of the mentoredassociates
