Femeconomy Retail Gender Equality Progress Report 2022

We recently updated our brand directory, with 49 brands joining the approved ranks, and 33 brands no longer approved. It’s an informative process of reviewing each record against our criteria, re-researching each brand’s leadership composition, and amending our website directory to reflect any changes.

It is important to communicate and celebrate the positive progress that companies are making towards gender equality. There were also a few who unfortunately lost ground and slid backwards. Most changes resulted from Board composition changes and company acquisitions or divestments.

Here is our January 2022 Retail Gender Equality Progress Report to help you decide which brands to choose.

FEMEFemeconomy's thumbs up symbolCONOMY APPROVED MEANS

Brands have at least 30% of women on the Board of Directors or are 50% female owned. The Femeconomy Badge shows you which brands meet this criteria and have our approval.

IMPROVEMENT REQUIRED: BRANDS THAT NO LONGER MEET OUR CRITERIA

Gender Equality is a journey, which we recognise. However, we know from decades of research that companies with greater gender equality are more profitable, better able to win top talent and improve their employee satisfaction, customer orientation, and decision making outcomes. We hope to see these brands back under the Femeconomy approved banner soon!
