Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

We Are Kontoor

At Kontoor Brands, our purpose is to be the common thread that inspires people to live with passion and confidence. To be the common thread, we all must come together – one stitch at a time…just like the products we make.

No matter who you are, where you’re from, who you love, or how you identify, we’re all cross-stitched together at Kontoor.

"The natural connection between Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and our business strategy is a powerful one. We’re determined to strengthen that connection, from the way we recruit and develop talent, to the way we show up in the marketplace and in our communities as inclusive brands. Each one of us is accountable to strive to achieve our strategy, measured on our ability to create a growth culture that is worthy of our greatest aspirations."

- Scott Baxter

Diversity Equity and Inclusion Objectives

DEI Objectives: Increase Representation, Ensure Equity, Foster Inclusion

Employee Resource Groups

Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) are voluntary, employee-led diversity and inclusion initiatives that are formally supported by an organization. ERGs are organized based on common identities, interests, or backgrounds with the goal of supporting employees by providing opportunities to network and create a more inclusive workplace.


Kontoor’s Global Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) build community, foster awareness / respect / inclusion, provide a pathway for increased employee engagement, and attract diverse talent. ERGs are an essential component of the diversity, equity, and inclusion strategy at Kontoor. Our ERGs create connection opportunities for employees, which improve the sense of belonging for members and colleagues within the organization.
