Our Theory of Change

We believe all work should be empowering, and should enable women and men to improve their well-being and increase their standard of living. We believe that employing women in the formal sector is vital to achieving gender equality within prosperous economies. We believe that jobs in global supply chains offer disproportionate opportunities to empower women and improve living conditions for the wider society.

HERproject empowers women working in global supply chains through workplace-based programs, capacity building of local civil society, and advocacy with business and government.
