With International Women's Day just around the corner, one activewear giant has achieved a new goal. Equal pay for equal work across its staff throughout the company. Lululemon Atheltica has more than 20,000 employees, 78 percent of which are female. Sixty percent of these women are in senior leadership positions. The label first set the goal in 2018 for its 479 stores and nine support centres across 15 countries.
"We're fortunate to have a number of powerful female leaders throughout the company, which helped us approach this work with the utmost intention," a spokesperson from Lululemon said in a statement. "We’re proud that over time, that investment has declined as our programs for diversity and inclusion have become stronger. Even so, re-evaluating gender pay equity has been built into our annual plans to ensure consistency year after year for all our people."
