PVH Corp has signed the Women’s Empowerment Principles, a partnership initiative of UN Women and the UN Global Compact, which comprises a set of seven steps that businesses can take to promote gender equality in the workplace such as establishing high-level corporate leadership for gender equality, fighting against any form of discrimination, ensuring education, training and professional development for women.

Businesses are encouraged to use the principles as a guide for actions everyone can take to empower women to participate fully in economic life across all sectors and throughout all levels of economic activity, from the boardroom, to the workplace, and across the supply chain.

“It is very important to me that PVH leads our industry in creating and maintaining a culture of inclusion where every individual is valued,” said Emanuel Chirico, chairman and CEO of PVH Corp. “I am committed to making sure that all associates, regardless of gender, ethnicity, or background, have the opportunity to realize their full potential at PVH and more importantly, embracing inclusion and diversity is integral to our success as an organization. We are determined to strengthen activities and programs to promote gender equality for the betterment of PVH and the experiences and opportunities of our associates.”
