Christina Brewer-McGrath is a #WomenInTech whose passion for creating diverse teams led to success as IT Director for Sam's Club Supply Chain. We caught up with her at this week’s #NWATechSummit.
"There's an idea out there that diversity doesn’t have to be called out as a need to know it’s important. But the way I think about it is similar to the way our company identifies our basic beliefs, like integrity and respect for the individual. We call these things out because we never want to lose sight of them." #TeamWalmart
Leading up to Shareholders Week 2018, we’ll be throwing it back to some of our favorite memories from past Shareholders events – starting with Kortney. In 2015, he launched online grocery pickup at his store in Aurora, Colorado which landed him a spot on stage to introduce our CEO Doug McMillon.

Walmart’s sustainability team works with suppliers to reduce our environmental footprint throughout the supply chain. Meet Mark, who builds strategies to ensure the products on our shelves do more good for the environment than harm.
“I love that every day, I can go to work and know I’m driving toward something good. I work on complex things, like reducing deforestation, that have different solutions across the world. To know that I’m contributing even just a little bit is energizing, and I’m proud of Walmart every day for our progress.”
We’re adding hundreds of electric vehicle charging units, doubling our renewable energy efforts, and continuing down the path of reducing 1 gigaton of carbon emissions from our global supply chain.

Meet Sophie, whose undercover work for Red Team keeps Walmart’s security operations strong.
“I’ve worked for Walmart twice now. First as a teenager, pushing carts and working registers, and now making the company’s security stronger as an analyst for our Red Team. Each time, I’ve had that same feeling of belonging and camaraderie.” - Sophie, Red Team Analyst in Bentonville, AR.
Every career is a journey that can end up in an unexpected place. Ana Keef's journey started in circuit boards, and led to the internet of things (IoT), machine learning, object detection and other emerging technologies in retail.
“Walmart’s culture and values are what really made me fall in love with our company. Our CEO offered a town hall to hear from associates about how Walmart can be more inclusive – and then took action on my recommendation to expand adoption benefits. It’s proof that our leaders want to make Walmart an inclusive place to work for all people.”
- Michelle, Senior Project Manager for Global Culture, Diversity & Inclusion in Bentonville, AR.
