My SD is female, 3 of the store's 4 ETL's are female. 7 of 10 TL's are female, VM is female, PML is male, that's 12/17 females in total with positions that are above TM pay. Yeah, Target clearly doesn't promote women.And if you’re female your screwed.
As for leadership being unacceptable if all white/straight, I disagree. At least insofar as a specific store is concerned. I'm not saying it'd be fine if the entire company was purely white/straight leadership and minorities were explicitly excluded, but with a sample size as small as individual stores I don't think it's a huge deal. To the best of my knowledge that describes 16/17 of the PG45+ employees at my store, but I don't believe it is due to any sort of discriminatory behavior, it's due to demographics, the city I live in has a population that is 88.2% white. .882 * 17 = 15 expected white employees, actual number of 16 isn't much of a deviation. I'm not sure they're all straight, but to the best of my knowledge they are, but it's not a question I'd ever go around asking people - it doesn't matter to me.
