Embracing Black Experiences

We want to do more and do better for our Black friends, colleagues and community members. Black experiences, in all their diversity, are at the heart of our drive for positive, sustainable change.

We're listening, learning—and taking action

Celebrating Black History doesn't end with February.

March forward with us as we amplify Black voices, support Black success and recognize Black excellence—every day of the year.

See how we're following the lead of those who inspire and elevate Black communities.

Putting words into action

  • Inspiring excellence in the classroom—and beyond

    Every day, Historically Black Colleges and Universities set the stage for students like Damaal and Traquel. Meet two of TD's newest interns and see firsthand why we continue to support—and recruit from—HBCUs across the country.

  • What started as a single print publication has since evolved into something far greater. See how BleuLife founder and CEO DéVon Johnson uses his company's various platforms to bring a reflection of himself, and his community, into the spotlight.

  • No one knows the value of mentorship more than our colleague Yani Talley. Find out how Yani got to where she is and how she uses her voice to influence her fellow TD colleagues and continue the cycle of mentoring.

  • When small businesses thrive, the communities around them thrive, too. Based in NYC, Ascendus is a non-profit that supports minority entrepreneurs financially—and offers education and guidance for lasting success.

  • Nourishing neighbors in Harlem, NY

    Veganhood founders and TD customers Janine and Lanise are always catering to their Harlem community. Watch how this innovative duo found a recipe for success with help from local TD store manager Natalie.

  • Our colleague Marcus Gonzales has made giving back to his community a regular part of life—and now it's part of his job, too. Learn more about his career path and the inspiring work he's doing in his new role as Community Business Development Officer.

  • As part of their mission to serve the underserved, Urban League of Broward County is tackling policy reform to support the Black community in Florida. Learn more about the TD Ready Challenge grant recipient and their inspiring CEO, Dr. Germaine Smith-Baugh.

Creating a space to thrive

We put our all into supporting our colleagues' careers—and it shows.
