Globally, women are undervalued and marginalized at best and abused physically or sexually at worst. So many women find themselves enslaved in the sex industry. Others are trapped in the cycle of poverty. In both cases, there seems little hope of breaking out of their present circumstances.
But Dignity recognizes that women are often the key to bringing transformation to families and communities. They just need opportunity and the resources to make it happen.
For that reason, we are intentionally working to have a significant number of women at every level of the company...workers, leaders, board members and investors. We are providing paid diversity training, with the intention of instilling in our employees the value of all people in general, and women specifically. And we are creating economic opportunity for women through fair pay and profit sharing, as well as access to banking and financial services.
