Femeconomy Retail Gender Equality Progress Report January 2019

Last week, we updated our brand directory. 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. Over 890 brands meet our criteria. When we started Femeconomy it was just over 700.

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 2019 Retail Gender Equality Progress Report to help you decide which brands to choose.

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

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!
