The theme for International Women's Day this year is I Am Generation Equality: Realizing Women's Rights, which celebrates 25 years since the UN’s Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, a landmark framework for the global advancement of women’s rights.
In honor of this important milestone, Deckers Lab is proud to announce our ongoing partnership with HERproject, an organization committed to empowering women across the world through workplace-based interventions on health, financial inclusion, and gender equality.
Providing training on a vast range of topics including general wellness, how to give yourself an in-home breast examination, family planning, and proper contraception, HERproject programs like HERhealth help improve quality of life for entire communities, encouraging workers to share their what they learn.
Working with HERproject since 2016, Deckers has helped provide education to the female workers in our factories worldwide. By 2027, we plan to enrich the lives of 100,000 women globally. In an age where gender inequality is only starting to be seriously addressed, there is still a long way to go, but we hope that this program can serve as a beacon to other companies who want to make a difference.
