Nike to Publish Diversity Data for First Time

Sportswear giant Nike has committed to release its promotion and recruitment data by gender, race and ethnicity by the end of 2024 – almost a year after 35% of the company’s shareholders called for them to do so. The resolution filed by US NGO As You Sow in 2021 requested the company provide further information on the effectiveness of its diversity and inclusion programmes. As You Sow withdrew a similar request this year, following the Nike’s agreement to publish its recruitment and retention rate data. Meredith Benton, As You Sow’s Workplace Equity Programme Manager, said: “Nike has allocated significant capital into building its reputation as a leader on social justice issues. Investors have been seeking reassurance that its own practices are sufficiently implemented to protect its very valuable brand.”
