A Look Back at 2016: Our Values in Action
by Carlee Gomes, Gap Inc. blogger
Equality, inclusion and sustainability are not buzzwords at Gap Inc. These are the values Gap Inc. was founded on and they're woven into the fabric of our business.
And while we're committed to these values and our efforts to support them because it's the right thing to do, it's rewarding to see the team's work being recognized for how we do business and for bringing our values to life.
This past year, we were named as the sole company recipient of the 2016 Catalyst Award for our culture of equality; we earned a spot on Fortune's list of 50 companies Changing the World for our work to advance the lives of women around the world through our P.A.C.E. program; and we were asked by the White House to speak about the importance of creating first jobs and opportunities for the nation's youth through our This Way Ahead program.
Some other notable achievements in sustainability and equality:
The bottom line is we're proud to be putting in work alongside leading organizations that share our commitment to a brighter future: a more inclusive workplace, a healthier environment, and a more transparent and socially responsible supply chain.
At Gap Inc. and our family of brands, we remain open to business for everyone, today and every day. We are committed to doing our part to bring people together and work towards a brighter future where everyone has the opportunity to thrive as equals.
