Target CEO Apologizes

Many were boycotting Target. Diversity Inc. lists Target as No. 40 on its diversity list.
After increased public criticism, boycott threats and opposition from immigration and gay-rights groups, Target CEO Gregg Steinhafel issued a public apology late last week for having made a $150,000 political donation to MN Forward, a pro-business group that backs anti-gay-rights and immigration-rights gubernatorial candidate Tom Emmer.

"While I firmly believe that a business climate conducive to growth is critical to our future, I realize our decision affected many of you in a way I did not anticipate, and for that I am genuinely sorry," wrote Steinhafel. Read Target's ceo's letter and the rest at Diversity Inc.
