As a bonus, equality also fuels sustainable economies and benefits societies and humanity at large. That’s why we broadened our focus area Strengthening Women to Equality in 2016, after which we initiated a number of projects for integration and inclusion across the world.

We promote equal opportunities for people globally

Even though equal opportunities for people have increased, inequality still persists and there are still big differences in access to basic services such as health and education for people around the world.

In our work towards equal societies, H&M Foundation together with CARE drives a transformative program focusing on creating systemic change. In addition to this, we have several local projects for direct impact on integration and inclusion of marginalized groups across the world.
