HERproject - Health Enables Return

Commitment by

Business For Social Responsibility (Bsr)

In 2007, Business for Social Responsibility committed to create HERproject, which will work to deliver and facilitate education for women workers in global supply chains, strengthen the capacity of enterprises to support such efforts, and create and expand the reach of collaborative partnerships to advance these goals. Throughout the three-year span of the work, HERproject aspires to reach more than 500,000 women factory workers in Asia and Central America. In 2006, the BSR Annual Conference drew more than 1,100 participants from 40 countries. BSR hopes to have a similar turnout in October 2007, and will convene a special two-hour panel session, which will reach a large target audience of corporate representatives who make buying/sourcing decisions that directly impact women workers.
