Empowering women in our supply chain

In 2011, Walmart launched the Women in Factories Training Program, a five-year initiative that will train 60,000 women in 150 factories and processing facilities producing for top retail suppliers in industries with high percentages of women. The program, which is being implemented in collaboration with local NGOs, will teach critical life skills related to communication, hygiene, reproductive health, occupational health and safety, identifying personal strengths and gender sensitivity. Up to 8,000 women will also receive leadership training to develop the work and life skills necessary for personal and career development.
