HER, AT THE HEART OF US
Our goal is to double our impact—in support of women, girls and the causes they care about—by 2025
Together with our associates, customers and partners, we aim to raise and contribute $250 million by 2025 in support of women and girls globally to help them be their best selves through opportunities to lead, strengthen communities, and live well.
ascena’s core purpose is to provide all women and girls with fashion and inspiration for living confidently every day. As one of the largest U.S.-based specialty apparel retailers focused exclusively on women and girls, ascena and our brands seek to drive positive change for the women and girls we serve.
OUR APPROACH – RESPONSIBILITY AT ASCENA
We focus on inspiring women and girls—our customers, associates and suppliers—as well as the communities and environments where we do business. Our strong foundation is based on the responsible sourcing of our products and the sustainable operations of our enterprise. We believe that caring for women around the world and providing them with opportunities to lead, give back and live well, will lead to a better future for us all. Our connection to our associates and customers is deeply rooted throughout our business to bring Her, at the Heart of Us to life.
