For women to access the support they need worldwide, we partner with a cross-section of frontline, local organizations that provide vital and comprehensive needs-driven services, all while working towards rebuilding autonomy.
In order to break the intergenerational cycle of violence, we focus on addressing its root causes. With our partners, we challenge gender stereotypes particularly by engaging men and boys, involve the youth to change behaviors and attitudes and work on the intersection with violence against children, in particular incest.
Understanding the impacts of domestic violence, we work to create a safe and supportive workplace for survivors at Kering and through mobilizing other companies. We also offer our employees the opportunity to get involved by volunteering their skills to Foundation partners.
What we have achieved over the past decade and the evolution of the general context constitute an encouragement to carry on this fight with resolve, as there are still far too many victims.
François-Henri Pinault, Chairman and CEO of Kering,
Chairman of the Kering Foundation
The Kering Foundation has been a critical partner, as the first private funder to support our vision, contributing to the initial construction and enabling us to gain support from public authorities.
Ghada Hatem, Founder of La Maison des Femmes de Saint-Denis
Joining the Kering Foundation Community means being able to acquire better tools to impact many more women. It means forming alliances with other sectors, people and organizations around the world and thus to learn, create and strengthen hand-in-hand with those people who are also contributing to driving change.
