Diversity and Inclusion

We’re all different. At Coles, we see that as a good thing, because we know that our differences – our backgrounds, experiences and perspectives – set us apart. And they can also bring us together.

Our differences help us spark ideas, create connections and discover commonality. Helping us foster understanding, show empathy and build communities.

Being unique reminds us that everyone we work with is unique too. It inspires us to win together to deliver on our purpose of helping Australians eat and live better every day – by recognising that we only succeed together with our team, community and suppliers. Just as we have for over a century, we’re making Coles somewhere everyone feels like they belong.

We are in the final year of our five-year ‘A Team that is Better Together’ strategy, which incorporated 15 performance improvement targets (due to be achieved by December 2023) under our five focus areas of Belonging, Gender Equity, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander engagement, Accessibility and Pride.
