The NRF Foundation Student Program is returning to New York City in January and will feature an exclusive opportunity for undergraduates to be part of the audience for a recording of the National Retail Federation’s “Retail Gets Real” podcast.

The podcast – hosted by NRF Foundation Executive Director Bill Thorne – will be recorded on stage with an incredible guest: Target Board Chairman and CEO Brian Cornell.

Prior to joining Target in 2014 as chairman and CEO, he spent more than 30 years in leadership positions. Past roles include CEO of Michaels, Sam's Club and PepsiCo Americas Foods, a subsidiary of PepsiCo, and chief marketing officer at Safeway Inc.

The “Retail Gets Real” podcast recording with Cornell is just one of many exciting offerings planned for the 2022 NRF Foundation Student Program at the Javits Center.

The conference runs Jan. 13 – 16 and will include an in-person hiring event with retail’s top companies, insightful sessions with industry experts, mentoring opportunities with leading executives and access to NRF 2022: Retail’s Big Show.
