Our efforts towards women’s empowerment featured in Fast Retailing’s (UNIQLO) annual sustainability report

We are thankful to UNIQLO and its parent company Fast Retailing for featuring our efforts towards women’s empowerment in their annual sustainability report. “Women’s Empowerment Project”, launched by Fast Retailing in cooperation with UN Women, provides training for female workers in sewing factories and fosters personnel who can hold managerial positions.

“One year since the company started offering its Women’s Empowerment training, the number of female supervisors has increased from 9 to 92. Since the training began, it has become easier for female workers to talk to their supervisors about issues common to women, such as family problems or physical conditions, and this has brought about greater levels of cooperation in the workplace”, Zahara Ashraff, President – Human Resource
