PARTNERING WITH HERPROJECT TO EMPOWER WOMEN FACTORY WORKERS

Did you know that women make up more than 80% of the workers who run and operate the 300+ factories around the world that create the AE and Aerie styles you love?

You’ve told us the health and well-being of ALL women matters, which is why we want to take this opportunity to highlight our work with HERproject.

Since it was created in 2007, HERproject has worked in more than 900 workplaces across 14 countries, and has increased the well-being, confidence, and economic potential of more than 1,000,000 women.

And this is just the beginning! We’re continuing to roll out the program to more factories to empower more and more women. With HERproject, we’re not just investing in women around the world, we’re investing in their families and communities.
