StandoutWalmart79925In line with a company-wide initiative to increase diversity and inclusion in spending on procurement, the legal team of the supermarket group has taken a tough stance with hiring external counsel. Since 2011, the initiative has seen notable increases in the hiring of female and ethnically diverse fee earners and Walmart now demands demographic data from all legal services suppliers. In addition, over $56m of spending has gone to women-owned law firms in the five years to 2016.
