[...] "How it works: Each year, our suppliers will use a self-diagnostic tool to assess various aspects of gender equity — such as factories’ policies and processes, support for working parents and recruitment and hiring practices — and gain a comprehensive understanding of their strengths and areas of opportunity for enhancing gender equity. We will then provide support to help them address low-scoring areas and develop a long-term action plan to advance gender equity within their organization. We encourage our factories to first focus on developing sustainable gender equitable practices and policies. We also look to support factories in improving the lines of communication between workers and management (by aligning with our Engagement and Wellbeing work and encouraging them to adopt new communication technologies and platforms) so they can get a more accurate report of how effective the implementation of these practices and policies actually is."

          "The supplier’s workers are not subject to discrimination in employment, including hiring, compensation, promotion or discipline, based on gender, race, religion, age, disability, sexual orientation, pregnancy, marital status, nationality, political opinion, trade union affiliation, social or ethnic origin, or other status protected by local law. All workers, regardless of gender, will receive equal pay for work of equal value"[...]"The supplier acknowledges that every worker, regardless of gender, has a right to compensation for a regular work week that is sufficient to meet workers’ basic needs and provide some discretionary income"[...]"In FY20, we built the SDT in partnership with the International Center for Research on Women (ICRW) to measure gender equity at an organizational level specific to the footwear and apparel manufacturing industry[...]"Informed by the first year’s SDT data, we are also launching a suite of bespoke trainings with external experts to help support strategic suppliers in their journey to become more gender equitable." [...] "How it works: Each year, our suppliers will use a self-diagnostic tool to assess various aspects of gender equity — such as factories’ policies and processes, support for working parents and recruitment and hiring practices — and gain a comprehensive understanding of their strengths and areas of opportunity for enhancing gender equity. We will then provide support to help them address low-scoring areas and develop a long-term action plan to advance gender equity within their organization. We encourage our factories to first focus on developing sustainable gender equitable practices and policies. We also look to support factories in improving the lines of communication between workers and management (by aligning with our Engagement and Wellbeing work and encouraging them to adopt new communication technologies and platforms) so they can get a more accurate report of how effective the implementation of these practices and policies actually is."
