P.A.C.E. Academy: Learning Programs to Advance Women and Girls

Commitment by

Gap Inc.

In 2015, Gap Inc. committed to adapt and expand its Personal Advancement and Career Enhancement Program (P.A.C.E.) to support a total of one million women and girls over the next five years. Having provided 30,000 women to date with transformational life skills education and technical training, Gap Inc. committed to increase the implementation of P.A.C.E. within its supply chain to support over 450,000 women garment workers. Initially a proprietary workplace program, Gap Inc. also committed to develop new curricula and pursue licensing agreements with NGOs, corporations, and schools to deliver tailored training to more than 500,000 women and adolescent girls in geographies and sectors beyond those where Gap Inc. has a direct interest. The expansion of P.A.C.E. in workplace and community settings will allow women and girls to acquire the confidence, life skills, and technical abilities needed to enhance their career opportunities and socio-economic mobility.
