Target welcomes the opportunity to report our Gender Pay Gap figures and to be transparent about our gender pay difference and the positive actions we as a Company can continue to take to reduce this gap and ensure opportunities for all employees. Our aim is to reduce our Gender Pay Gap and we have formulated a multi - faceted approach to allow us to build on and work towards fulfilling this goal.
