Working for Greater Equality and Opportunity

Working for Greater Equality and Opportunity By standing up for all of us, we become a voice for each of us

Seeking a better life for your family. Building the confidence to set bigger goals. Finding time to mentor an intern.

These acts inspire us every day—and they are carried out by people touched by our business throughout the world. We could not succeed as a company without exceptional people who support our business—from the employees in our retail stores, to the workers on the factory floors, to the communities that surround our operations. These are the people who make our company what it is today, and by helping them succeed, we all succeed.

We aim to create opportunities for our employees, for women and girls around the world impacted by the apparel supply chain and for young adults seeking to begin their career, so they can reach their goals and fulfill their greatest potential.

As a company, we can make the biggest impact by focusing on areas that align with our business and affect the people we work with. Our mission is to promote advancement for people and communities. We focus on creating opportunities for our employees, young people seeking their first jobs, the workers who make our clothes, and the women and girls in the global communities where our company has influence and reach. We set ambitious goals, and we integrate our advancement programs into our core company operations to deliver social and business returns.

 

Our empowerment, employee and workforce programs support the rights and well-being of the people who embody and drive our business, ensuring they have equal opportunity and support to develop personally and professionally. Within our global workforce, our teams are dedicated to giving back, both through their time and their support, and Gap Inc. is there to match them every step of the way. Working with and hiring great people, encouraging their development and supporting them for who they are just makes sense. 

One of the critical ingredients to the success of our advancement programs is our focus on partnerships: We collaborate with local and international NGOs, local community organizations and government agencies that expand our access to people, resources and expertise. We know that collaboration allows us to engage with people and contribute more to communities than we could alone.
