Gap Inc.'s response re gender based violence

Author: Gap Inc., Published on: 26 June 2018

We are deeply concerned by the allegations raised in this report, and our Global Sustainability team is currently conducting additional due diligence to investigate and address the allegations raised within it. Further, we have initiated a dialogue with some of our key implementing partners, among them CARE, ILO Better Work, and Verité, to discuss how our industry can accelerate its effort to address this global, systemic issue....Globally, Gap Inc. agrees that gender-based workplace violence is a deeply important issue and an appropriate subject for ILO action, and we are engaged on this issue in a multitude of ways. Since 2017, we have participated in a CARE advisory group that has focused on, among other gender-based issues, identifying how the private sector can best support the ILO’s effort to address gender-based violence in the workplace. We will continue to address this urgent issue through our role in the advisory group, to advance our goal of seeing the ILO adopt measures that will help all stakeholders address this issue in a targeted and effective manner.
