Despite the importance of Italy in luxury supply chains and the high prevalence of women in the workforce, little is known about gender inequalities faced by women working behind the prized “Made in Italy” label. Kering and its family of Italian brands—Bottega Veneta, Gucci, Kering Eyewear, and Pomellato—partnered with BSR to understand the status of women working in their Italian luxury supply chain and identify opportunities to support gender equality in the country.
Through its work with BSR and participation in BSR’s HERproject, ANN was able to set—and achieve—its commitment to empower 100,000 women in its global supply chain community between 2012 and 2018.
This case study was developed by Win-Win Strategies in support of the Investing in Women initiative, a collaboration platform providing companies with opportunities to share, learn, and design effective approaches to women’s empowerment.
Between 2012 and 2014, BSR piloted the HERfinance program with 10,000 garment factory workers in India.
