countries are reached by H&M Foundation’s initiatives within Equality.
marginalized people have been empowered with tools to unlock their full potential in the strive towards equal opportunities.
Greater efforts are needed for health, education, social protection, and decent jobs especially for women, young people, migrants, and other vulnerable groups. If people are excluded from opportunities and services, we cannot make the planet better for all.
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.
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.
