Walmart starts 'Women in Factories' training program in India, China
Posted On: 07-04-2012 00:00:00 12

Walmart is launching a 'Women in Factories' programme for training and education of women workers in its units, which is expected to benefit nearly 60,000 of its women work force. The programme is part of Walmart's Global Women's Economic Empowerment Initiative, launched in 2011 September by Walmart president and CEO Mike Duke. This is a five-year initiative that will be implemented in collaboration with local NGOs and teach "critical life skills" related to communication, hygiene, reproductive health, occupational health and safety and gender sensitivity. About 8,000 women will also receive leadership training to develop the work and life skills necessary for personal and career development. The initiative would be rolled out to 150 factories in India, Bangladesh, China and Central America over the next five years, initially launching in Bangladesh and India this year. The programme will be implemented in collaboration with NGOs CARE in Bangladesh and SWASTI in India. This initiative by Walmart aims to improve lives of Walmart's suppliers, associates and customers.
