    The home goods icon’s “egalitarian” and “inclusive” culture is one in which “everyone’s opinions matter.” No matter their background, “people feel valued for the contributions they make.” (More than half of staff are minorities, and 47% are women.) And to promote equality, each location has a “diversity and inclusion ambassador.”
