Supporting Women through Health Education

Through the 100,000 Women Commitment, we have impacted more than 82,000 women. ANN INC. participates in the HERproject (“HER” stands for Health Enables Returns), a program that provides in-factory women’s health education. This is a key issue for women in developing countries where there is often a lack of awareness regarding women's health issues and how to lead healthier lives.
 
Supporting Women through Training

At ANN INC., we work with suppliers who support and empower the women who work at their factories. One of our suppliers, Orient Craft, inspires us with their commitment to empowering women by providing training at their Fashion Institute of Technology. These small steps help these women find new opportunities and provide for themselves and their families.
