Accelerating a global agenda of women’s empowerment.
The proceeds raised will support the Empower@Work Collaborative to drive collective action for the benefit of women workers and gender equality in global supply chains.
The Empower@Work Collaborative is a joint effort of United Nations’ ILO-IFC Better Work, BSR’s HERproject, CARE International, and Gap Inc’s P.A.C.E (Personal Advancement & Career Enhancement) collaboration that implements training programs to address critical needs of women working within the value chain including health, financial planning, problem solving and decision-making, and gender equality. The trainings are designed specifically to better address the complex needs of women working in factories.
For over a decade these organizations have supported the empowerment of women factory workers in the global garment, footwear and consumer goods industry. Combined, these efforts have supported over 4.5 million workers in global supply chains to build skills, knowledge and confidence.
