Workforce Diversity at Starbucks

Updated Monday, April 3, 2023

The way we hire, develop and advance our partners (employees) is critical to our journey toward inclusion, diversity and equity at Starbucks. We are publishing our current workforce diversity data in more detail than we have previously shared, as well as our most recent filings with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. We will continue to share our progress regularly.

Below you will find the gender, racial and ethnic composition of our Starbucks partners based in the United States. To better represent demographic patterns among Starbucks partners, we are presenting the data for the key functions of our U.S. business: partners who work in company-owned retail stores (Retail); roasting plants/distribution centers (Manufacturing); and support center roles including Marketing, Finance, etc. (Corporate) 

As of October 2, 2022, Starbucks U.S. partner base: Is made up of 71.6% female and 50.5% people from racial and ethnic minority groups. Breaking down our people of color representation further, our partners are 8% Black, 30.5% Hispanic or Latino, 5.8% Asian, 5.8% Two or More Races, .6% American Indian or Alaskan Native and .5% Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander. And since 2018, we have consistently reached 100 percent pay equity for partners of all genders and race.

To promote transparency and open dialogue, Starbucks disclosed its EEO-1 data for the years 2016 through 2021 to-date, and we plan to disclose our Consolidated EEO-1 Report for 2022 effective upon our next submission to the EEOC in 2023.
