In 2002 Walgreens launched a plan to open two distribution centers:
one in Connecticut and one in South Carolina. They also announced
both would be staffed by a large number of people with
disabilities. For example, one of the managers of the South
Carolina center has cerebral palsy and struggled to find work
anywhere after college. The original plan was to have one third of
the centers staffed by employees with a disability but now 40
percent of the South Carolina center and 50 percent of the
Connecticut center employees have a disability. According to the
senior vice president of Supple Chain and Logistics, the centers
that employ people with disabilities are the most cost effective in
the entire company, and Walgreens plans to implement the same
program in 8,300 stores across the country.
In order to ensure that diversity is a focus in every Walgreens
store, the company has appointed a chief diversity officer, Steve
Pemberton. Steve Pemberton is responsible for "ensuring that
Walgreens demonstrates cultural and workforce diversity, and will
take the lead on directing activities to help serve diverse markets
and populations, including customers in medically underserved
areas, food deserts and urban areas" (Johnsen).
Walgreens announced in 2009 that they would donate $10,000 a year
to each of the country's 111 accredited pharmacy colleges to help
increase the diversity among students. In doing this, Walgreens has
ensured not only that there will be a more diverse workforce in
pharmacies, but also that their own pharmacies will be staffed by a
more diverse group.
