Connect to something bigger
Connecting with each other, our customers, and the communities we
are a part of fosters a deep sense of purpose at Carter’s.
We lead with L.O.V.E - Living Our Values Everyday.
Act with Integrity
We hold ourselves to a high standard. We do the right thing - even when no one is looking.
We know what is expected of us and we go beyond what is required.
We are one team pursuing shared goals. We help each other and win together.
We are a creative and innovative organization. We challenge the status quo and believe in continuous improvement.
Invest in People
We hire the best talent. We want people to grow with us.
Strength through diversity and inclusion
We strive to create a welcoming environment where you have a sense of belonging regardless of any dimension of difference. Carter’s diversity and inclusion (D&I) commitment ensures that our workforce reflects our diverse world through a range of programs to broaden diversity and ensure fairness across our global enterprise. We invest in D&I training across our retail stores, offices and Distribution Centers focused on unconscious bias.
“As a woman of color, I know the importance representation has on the decisions that are made daily. I see the impact I have on our corporate culture by having a seat at the table. And I see people feeling empowered to speak up and be part of the narrative and to show up at work as their authentic selves. We have made tremendous strides, and we continue to learn and evolve as a Company. I think we are on the right path, and I aspire for us to continue to increase our engagement with the diverse communities we serve.”
Uplifting our communities
We believe in contributing to a better future for children, our communities and our world. We do this through Carter’s Cares, a corporate philanthropic program that focuses on helping children in need, with an emphasis on early childhood education.
B'gosh Jeanius Campaign
The B’gosh® Jeanius campaign supports DonorsChoose.org and Delivering Good through monetary and product donations.
All financial donations support DonorsChoose.org, an online charity that gives donors the opportunity to fund classroom projects across the country. Denim and product donations are distributed to children in need at various organizations through the Delivering Good network.
B’gosh Jeanius launched in 2014 and runs in-store and online during the Back to School season. Customers can make monetary donations to help children in need have a great back to school experience.
Pajama Program is a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that promotes and supports a comforting bedtime routine and healthy sleep for children to help them thrive.
They provide new pajamas and storybooks, sleep health education, and caring connections to ensure that children facing adversity—including low family income, housing insecurity, and family instability—have the tools they need for better bedtimes.
Carter’s has partnered with Pajama Program since 2009; it is the first and largest partnership of its kind. Each December, Carter’s runs an in-store and online campaign to collect monetary donations.
Annually, Carter’s donates over 100,000 pajamas to Pajama Program in addition to the funds raised by our customers during the holidays.
Light the Night
We have a long-standing relationship with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Light the Night (LTN) that is supported by employee-run fundraisers and annual LTN Walks. Carter’s has participated in the Atlanta Light The Night Walk since it began in 1999.
By 2030, we are committed to:
Improve the well-being of at least 10 million families.
Carter’s employees and their families commit to volunteering 200,000 hours in our communities.
Together with our customers and team members, invest more than $50 million in education and products toward improving the lives of children.
