It’s one thing to make pledges and promises. It’s something else to come through when it counts and make tangible progress towards greater diversity, equity and inclusion. Our people consistently deliver real life-changing results.



We stand together, we learn together, and we commit together. Through a broad range of thoughtful practices, programs and initiatives, our Impact Teams are driving change while holding us accountable.

Here’s where these actions are focused:

At DICK’S, our people aren’t sitting on the bench. They’re in the game and being the change they want to see happen. They’re furthering initiatives and driving our efforts to bring about genuine advancements in diversity, equity and inclusion.


    Guiding our organization’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion journey, this is a cross-functional team ranging from individual contributors to senior leaders. They’re focused on shaping our strategy, driving our work forward and acting as the voice of our teammates.


    Our Courtside Team offers all teammates an opportunity to personally get involved with our inclusion journey by bringing our DE&I strategy to life. This includes anything from leading Dialogue Circles with fellow teammates to identifying local partnerships or giving opportunities that align with our DE&I strategy.


    Whether conducted virtually or locally, Dialogue Circles provide our teammates with a safe space for hard conversations on race, gender, religion and more. Each circle enables teammates to connect across differences, lean in and move forward in their DE&I journey at their own pace.
