Champion the run for all

Until we all run on equal ground

The shoes and gear we develop, the experiences we create, and the partnerships we build should contribute to a more inclusive and accessible running community.


Diversity, equity, and inclusion

We believe in the power of a diverse running community that includes people of different races/ethnicities, national origins, abilities, genders, ages, sexual orientations, body types, and circumstances. We are pursuing practices that will achieve equity in our business — so everyone feels a sense of belonging as their own, authentic selves.

People running
Our targets

  • Achieve at least 50% representation of women at all levels of Brooks U.S. employees
  • Reach at least 30% BIPOC representation at all levels of Brooks U.S. employees
  • Maintain our Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s “Corporate Equality Index” score of 100 / 100

Community impact

The run can do more than improve health — it can improve well-being. We hope to create this positive change by listening and engaging with runners in their communities.

Our targets

  • Dedicate more than $5M per year in cash and gear to social impact programs
  • Focus on partnerships that make the benefits of the run accessible to everyone

Responsible sourcing

A responsible global supply chain starts with factories who share our objectives to trace our supply chain, respect human rights, promote factory employee voice and reduce environmental impact.

Responsible Sourcing Standards
Our targets

  • 100% of in-scope factories complete and verify an annual SLCP CAF assessment
  • 100% of in-scope factories complete and verify an Higg FEM assessment
  • 100% of input chemicals used at in-scope factories comply with the ZDHC MRSL (conformance Level 1) by 2025
