Featured Story

Empowering the women in our supply chain with the most powerful tool available to them—education—is aligned with our most fundamental values as a company. To ensure that these values are applied throughout our business, we have set a target of reaching 100,000 members of our workforce through our worker well-being program by 2020, of which HERproject accounts for approximately 80%. Partnering with HERproject provides us with multi-dimensional benefits that span our business and values. Better-educated workers report higher job satisfaction and lower turnover, and as a women-led and women-driven company, we need to embody our values in order to ingrain them within our culture.

HERproject provides a meaningful connection across our business, from our customers to our corporate offices to the farthest reaches of our supply chain, based on a shared dedication to empowering women. This is a value that needs to live in every element of our business, rather than be confined to a CSR report.
