In 2015, Walmart and the Walmart Foundation launched the Retail Opportunity Initiative, a five-year, $100 million sector-wide effort aimed at strengthening the transferability of skills of the U.S. retail workforce and developing ways to make it easier for front-line workers to advance their careers. To date, Walmart and the Walmart Foundation have funded research, held convenings, executed upskilling pilots in cities across the country, and learned a significant amount. We are looking for those innovative communities or regions that want to take the next step, in a collaborative approach, to upskill incumbent service sector workers to careers that can lead to advancement or promotion in their community and begin to lay the foundation for systemic change in training incumbent workers.
