    PACE is awesome! It's so great seeing Gap doing good work in the world, especially focused on developing women's life skills, education, and participation in the workforce. Keep up the good work!

  • Emily Friedman

    I love that the P.A.C.E program partnered with ICRW, CARE and local leaders. The best way to create positive change is to collaborate across all sectors!

  • Jacob Appel

    Awesome to see the uptick in savings rate for women who completed PACE. Good stuff!

    It's inspiring to hear how women, no matter their background or education level, are becoming incredible leaders in their owns ways. I personally thrive the best under mentorship so it's refreshing to see women support each other rather than push each other down because of competition or threat.

    • Emily Howard

      I agree, Annie. I think it's important to arm people with the tools and knowledge that will help them succeed on their own. Empowering these women to support themselves, their families and their communities is a great thing.

  • Zoe-Zoe Sheen

    Awesome! I love how this program is helping to empower women and encouraging personal AND professional growth.

    We often forget how lucky we have it; spreading awareness and making a real, tangible difference is an extraordinary feat.

  • Alessandra Rizzotti

    It's great to see that this program has been implemented in so many areas.

    Incredible to see a company like GAP doing something for women that will likely improve women's lives for multiple generations.

    I love that this post is on Women's Day. What a way to celebrate the importance of supporting women in the workplace both in and out of the P.A.C.E. program.

    I love that they created this program with partnerships rather than "in a vacuum." The increases in self esteem and financial savvy are incredible!
