What others are saying

At Wal-Mart, our presence in so many diverse communities affords us both a responsibility and an opportunity to lead by example and to set priorities that will not only allow us to do well as a company, but to do good in the world. Going forward, we intend to continue as a retailer and an employer of choice, and we want to further our efforts to live up to the high standards we are setting for ourselves.

"Wal-Mart continues to be a strong private sector advocate for Asian-Pacific Americans ... " Willy Borromeo, co-publisher of Asian Enterprise

"As our country continues its celebration of Black history Month, it's important to remember that African- American history is, in fact, America's history... we appreciate the vision and support of Wal-Mart to help bring this historic project to life." Tavis Smiley, nationally recognized radio and television spokesperson

"We have the good fortune to live in one of the most culturally rich countries in the world, and Wal-Mart recognizes that this richness is a workplace asset...harnessing the wealth of talents and perspectives that people of different backgrounds have to offer is helping Wal-Mart excel in our increasingly global and competitive world ... Wal-Mart is truly leading by example." Suzanne Riss, editor-in-chief of Working Mother magazine
