Walmart holds the diversity of our business and our associate team as one of our core values. We believe that by cultivating and supporting diversity at Walmart, we are better able to serve our customers, our communities and each other.

I'm excited to share the news that Sharon Orlopp has been appointed Chief Diversity Officer at Walmart. She brings great passion to this role, as well as extensive experience, and we are confident that she will help us grow our diversity efforts around the world.

Sharon began at Walmart in 2003 as Vice President of People. Just one year later, she was promoted to Senior Vice President of People at Sam's Club, where she has served for the last six years. As an advocate for diversity and inclusion, she has sponsored immersion trips for associates, served as an executive champion for internal diversity groups for our associates and supported numerous diversity events within and external to Walmart.

At Walmart, we are committed to a diverse workforce where all ideas, perspectives and cultures are included, and we know Sharon will be an energetic leader for this commitment. We look forward to working together with you in the days ahead. To learn more about Walmart’s diversity programs, please visit
