CVS is requiring leadership training that pushes critical social justice concepts like privilege checking, allyship pledges, and bias auditing, according to documents obtained by The Daily Wire.

As part of the “Creating a DEI Action Plan” module for its General Management Development Program, CVS instructs participants to confess privileges, outline specific advocacy actions, and document personal biases they want to address and inclusive traits to develop.

“CVS Health’s commitment to inclusion and belonging is unwavering, and our holistic approach to strategic diversity management is inclusive of every one of our colleagues and those we care for each day,” the DEI training reads.

Employees are also asked to discuss their various social identities and the ones affecting their self-view most.

CVS says the program promotes inclusion and belonging, though critics argue it amounts to woke indoctrination.

“What they care about is maximizing profits for their shareholders,” researcher Jenny Guadamuz said. “They’ll make any excuse to close lower-profit stores, which are in these Black and Latino communities.”

CVS demands that trainees “reflect on the actions you can take to become a better ally and advocate in the workplace.”

“To be a better ally and advocate in the workplace, I will commit to,” one prompt reads.

“Use the below steps to define your personal commitment to moving forward in combatting biases,” one slide reads.

“Where are areas that you tend to have biases? What privileges do you have that others do not?” it asks.

The training is part of CVS’s stated focus on DEI and developing an inclusive culture, though the push has led some companies to backtrack from similar initiatives amid public backlash.

The documents provide an inside look at how one major corporation is operationalizing diversity, equity, and inclusion concepts for its emerging leaders through consciousness-raising exercises and allyship commitments.

“We remain focused on hiring, developing, and retaining a talented workforce that represents and reflects the diversity of the customers, communities, and patients we support,” CVS Health stated.

“Specifically in Rotation 2, we focus on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Involvement,” the training states. “Creating a DEI action plan is a great first step in identifying specific steps you can take to build your involvement in company-wide initiatives or your own daily practices.”
