igniting diverse technical leadership at Target

Target’s Engineering Manager Immersion Program (eMIP) is 12 months of on-the-job training to prepare lead-level engineers for future leadership roles. Combining both hands-on engineering and leadership skill-building, eMIP offers a real-world development experience like no other.

To help fulfill Target’s commitment to building diverse teams, eMIP focuses on groups who are historically underrepresented in technology and engineering fields.

As a lead engineer in eMIP, you’ll get:

  • Individualized support from your executive sponsor, peer mentor, manager, advisory board and cohort
  • Curated curriculum and training on leadership principles
  • On-the-job experience sharing time equally between work and leadership development
  • The benefit of an immersive, year-long experience designed to prepare you for a Senior Engineering Manager role on one of Target’s technology teams.

"The best part was that I was going through the program with a cohort of other people going through the same journey, facing the same challenges - and they became and continue to be a wonderful support system."

Nidhi, Senior Engineering Manager & 2019 eMIP graduate
