The retailers who matter most are at NRF Retail Week. It’s the must-attend gathering where retail’s decision-makers and influencers come together to learn, share, collaborate, network and inspire.
Surrounding NRF 2022: Retail’s Big Show, NRF Retail Week is a week-long celebration of parties, high-profile partner events, innovative store tours, experiential tech, workshops, educational sessions and more. Preview it all here, where NRF curates and promotes New York City’s must-attend events for retailers.
FQ Equality Lounge. These sessions include conversations from retailers on workplace diversity, leadership, and building brand values as a top priority. Discussions range from strategies for women on how to build and grow professional relationships to addressing the link to achieving equity.

We were very impressed with NRF, which introduced the Diversity and Inclusion, (DE&I ) at the stage to showcase many people of color who need to be exposed to the retail world. This was the debut of this kind of program and many people we interviewed and saw at this event, mostly people of Color enjoyed this program and wanted to have this added to to NRF’S Annual event.
Some of the Speakers who spoke in the Diversity and Inclusion (DE&I ) and topics discussed included: Investing in your team: Creating opportunities for women at the top, which included the following speakers and Brands participating; Ashley Stewart, Inc., Church’s Chicken, The Female Quotient and Uncommon Goods.
I like to personally like to thank The National Retail Federation (NRF), Matthew R. Shay President CEO of NRF and whole of his staff team doing a professional job of pulling together a show of this kind, guys a job well done and keep up the good work.
