RISE is an initiative to support collaborative industry action at scale, to advance gender equality in global garment, footwear and home textiles supply chains.
RISE pursues its mission through three core strategies
Strengthening knowledge and skills for workers and managers
Embedding gender equality in business practice
Influencing industry and public policy
RISE partners have jointly deployed more than 7,000 training programs involving more than 5 million workers resulting in increased skills, knowledge, and confidence. We seek to scale and sustain action for women's empowerment and gender equality in global value chains.
The achievement of gender equality in global supply chains requires collective action, which RISE catalyzes through membership. RISE welcomes brands, buyers, and suppliers in the apparel, footwear and home textile industries as members.
