HERproject: HERproject is a BSR program focused on educating factory workers, particularly women, about general health and nutrition, as well as reproductive and maternal health. The program is designed to benefit both workers and factories. A healthier workforce can reduce absenteeism, improve morale and motivation, increase productivity and result in a better quality of life for the workers and better returns for the factory.

Since launching in 2007, HERproject has reached more than 200,000 female workers and more than 25,000 male workers in over 150 factories around the world. Since 2011, we have launched the program at eight factories in China and Indonesia, reaching over 6,300 workers. In 2011, J.Crew was a finalist for an Award for HERproject training session

Business Action on Health from the Global Business Coalition on Health (GBC Health) based on our participation in HERproject. For more information on the project, visit herproject.org.

Our membership in the FFC has allowed for improved communication with our business partners and has made us more effective and efficient in our program operations.
