We believe that when you decide that inclusion isn’t optional, not only do the gaps between us close, but a whole new world of possibilities opens. This simple idea – that we all deserve to belong, and on our own terms – is core to who we are as a company and how we make decisions. Our business is driven by women – they are the majority of our customers, leaders, employees, and supply chain – and we are making industry leading investments to help ensure they are empowered to reach their full potential.
A simple idea—that we all deserve to belong, and on our own terms—is core to who we are as a company. For over 50 years, our brands have championed inclusivity not only for our teams and customers, but also through the product and experiences we create that are Open to All.
Today, Gap Inc. is a leading global retailer offering clothing and accessories available for purchase worldwide through company-operated stores, franchise stores, and e-commerce sites.
When our founders, Doris and Don Fisher, started Gap Inc. in 1969, a key part of their vision of success was creating opportunities for the people and communities touched by our business throughout the world.
Today, we’re working harder than ever to make our business more sustainable by setting bold goals, designing new programs and partnering with others to change our industry for the better.
Gap Inc. pays women and men — globally, dollar for dollar — equal pay for equal work. In 2014, Gap Inc. was the first Fortune 500 company to announce equal pay for equal work, with its methodology and data independently validated by a leading gender and diversity firm. Gap Inc. conducts annual internal pay equality reviews using this approved methodology.
"I would have always assumed that women were getting paid the same amount as men. But, back when we started Gap, of course they weren’t. That was a time when I don’t think it occurred to many people that women could be leaders. There were so few women leaders back then. It’s just the way the world was. It’s different now. I hear about women as CEOs and Presidents of companies, and I’m glad to know things have changed." - Doris Fisher
