The last few days I spent in Philadelphia, along with the company’s management. We communicated with the locals, trying to understand what we did wrong and what we need to do to remedy the situation

Instructing for employees was created with the participation of representatives of the authorities, as well as with the support of leaders of the movement for the struggle for civil rights.

During the briefing, employees will be told about the inadmissibility of discrimination, so that in Starbucks coffee houses people can feel safe and feel that they are happy there.
