retail is changing

Retailing Is Changing.

Coronavirus sped up the inevitable. As did the Black Lives Matter Movement.

office diversity

More Than A Buzz Word.

Diversity and Inclusion have to be engrained in your company culture.

product diversity

More Than An HR Strategy.

Diversity is critical in both your employee mix and your product mix.

We are in this together

We are your partners in diversifying the retail landscape

Diversify Retail Inc. is a path forward for open conversation, self-reflection, and most importantly, strategic action to increase diversity in all facets of our industry.

Drive the change the industry needs

Help Us Move The Industry Forward

We cannot accomplish our mission to diversify the retail industry without the help of our Volunteers and Coaches! If you're interested in making a difference in the lives of students and entrepreneurs of color, we are always looking for volunteers to help with our initiatives, and industry experts to serve as Coaches for our program participants.

Leading the Change

Meet The Founder

After the senseless murder of George Floyd, and seeing the awakening of retail companies to their own lack of diversity, DeAnna launched Diversify Retail to connect two communities she loves – the retail community and the communities of color.
