Lindex launches ‘WE Women by Lindex’ to take action for gender equality in supply chain

This summer Lindex launches ‘WE Women by Lindex’ to take action for gender equality in the supply chain and create more equal and inclusive workplaces. The project is part of Lindex ambition to improve the lives of women in the fashion company’s global supply chain.

 With ‘WE Women by Lindex’, Lindex will work to integrate gender equality into supplier management systems. Suppliers will receive training and support needed to plan, execute, monitor and evaluate business operations from a gender equality perspective. The performance on gender equality will be included in Lindex assessment of the suppliers.

 It’s the women that keep our business moving at Lindex. The majority of the textile workers who make our clothes are women and we are committed to improving their lives. For many years we have worked to drive change in our supply chain through worker engagement and training. Now we will add a top-to-bottom approach, where we work to change the leadership and management style in factories to become more inclusive for women and aware of gender equality issues, says Anna-Karin Dahlberg, Production Sustainability Manager at Lindex.

‘WE Women by Lindex’ is a three-year project developed through a partnership between Lindex and GIZ, and in cooperation with BSR and local non-governmental organisations. The project will start with 33 of Lindex suppliers in Bangladesh. The project also includes 10 non-Lindex suppliers in order to promote the concept to the industry in Bangladesh. The suppliers included in the project employ around 82 000 workers, of which more than 50 per cent are women. The ambition is to scale the project to cover the entire Lindex supply chain in the future.
