Lululemon introduces Centre for Social Impact
Lululemon has launched its Centre for Social Impact as it looks to remove barriers to wellbeing.
In a statement, the sportswear brand said this will be achieved through a combination of philanthropy, research and advocacy to support physical, mental, and social wellbeing across its local and global communities.
The centre will complement Lululemon’s existing social impact programmes and also launch new schemes and wellbeing tools.
Initiatives at launch include a $5 million investment across a number of new and long-term local grassroots partners. Organisations benefiting will include The Girls Opportunity Alliance that aims to empower adolescent girls around the world and improve their wellbeing through education. Other beneficiaries will include The National Alliance on Mental Illness where Lululemon will help lead the establishment of a 9-8-8 crisis number for mental health and suicide prevention services, and The Trevor Project, which is the world’s largest suicide prevention and crisis intervention organisation for LGBTQ young people.
Esther Speck, Lululemon vice president of global sustainability and social impact, said: “At Lululemon, we believe everyone has the right to be well and we know the path to wellbeing is possible when tools, support, and resources are accessible to all, Through Lululemon’s Centre for Social Impact, we will leverage our expertise, resources, and communities to advocate for the wellbeing of those most impacted by systemic inequity around the world.”
