Women make up 70% of GAP employees and 80% of garment workers worldwide. The global garment industry is one of the largest employers of low-skill women workers, and relatively few female factory workers are given opportunities to advance in the workplace. Many lack the basic education, life skills, and technical training they need to move into supervisor or manager roles where they work.
To address these problems, GAP created the P.A.C.E. (Personal Advancement & Career Enhancement) program. By leveraging company resources, partnerships with community organizations, and relationships with vendors, GAP Inc. is helping women get the skills and education they need to move forward in the workplace and in life. P.A.C.E. has provided life skills, technical training, and educational learning to more than 17,000 female garment workers like Sujatha – and the number is growing every day.
This video is part of a campaign produced by GOOD for the GAP, is being used to raise awareness about P.A.C.E. around the world.
