Chief Executive Officer

“Creating a more vibrant and sustainable future for our families and customers, our communities and our business has never been more critical. The COVID-19 pandemic made clear the urgent need for collaboration and innovation that addresses climate change and systemic barriers to equality and opportunity. The challenges we face now are no less daunting than they were nearly 20years ago when, as the first apparel retailer to release a social responsibility report, we first articulated our goals and committed to sharing our progress. Meaningful change takes action and a willingness to work together, such as we have committed to do alongside other signatories of the UN Global Compact. Every day, with partners, vendors and advocates, we’re using the power of our values at scale to be a force for good in the world — from going climate neutral by 2050 to partnering with our manufacturers to save water in product creation, requiring suppliers to pay workers digitally, hiring and coaching the next generation of leaders, providing essential life skills to over 800,000 women in the global supply chain, and more. To our partners who stand with us and our teams who lead this work: thank you for living our purpose to be Inclusive, by Design. Together, we’re creating a more just and sustainable business, industry, and planet, for everyone.”
