PVH Corp. has strengthened its long-standing commitment to inclusion and diversity by becoming a member of The Valuable 500, a global movement of companies and leaders committed to putting disability inclusion on their leadership agenda.
The announcement was made during the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
“Inclusion and diversity is at the center of how PVH does business. Joining The Valuable 500 strengthens our commitment to attracting diverse talent, creating an inclusive workplace, and developing innovative products to serve diverse consumers. We look forward to continuing our efforts in championing disability inclusion in the communities where we work and live,” said Manny Chirico, Chairman & CEO, PVH Corp. With over 1.3 billion people across the world living with some form of disability, The Valuable 500 calls on companies to make a firm and tangible commitment to eradicating disability exclusion in business and to unlock the business, social and economic value of people living with disabilities across the world.
The Valuable 500 was named a Tier 3 official project partner of the World Economic Forum.
“It is fantastic to return to Davos this year with 240 companies making tangible commitments to disability inclusion in the workplace. The last year has been very important for disability inclusion, and it has been great to see such a positive response to the campaign,” said Caroline Casey, Founder, The Valuable 500. Members of The Valuable 500 span 24 countries and 42 sectors. Other new members announced include Procter & Gamble, IBM, BAE, Total, Herbert Smith, Specsavers, Lily, Deutsche Bank UK, Cummins, ARP, Adobe, Hilton and Perrigo.
PVH believes diversity is not only defined by ethnicity, gender, age, religion, sexual orientation and physical ability but also by individuals’ unique perspectives, cultural traditions and personal journeys.
The TOMMY HILFIGER Adaptive line is an example of PVH’s desire to meet consumers’ needs and bring branded, fashionable clothing to an underserved population.
As a company, PVH strongly believes that everyone should be respected and it works to create a workplace environment where every individual is valued.
