At the MAKERS Conference, Celeste Burgoyne, lululemon EVP Americas & Global Guest Innovation and MAKERS@ Board Member, shared a pledge on behalf of lululemon to advance mental wellbeing benefits and offerings in 2020.
“At lululemon, we are on a powerful journey and we are proud of what we have accomplished over the last three years. We achieved 100% pay equity in 2018, a leading parenthood program offering up to 6 months paid leave in 2019, and our senior leadership team is comprised of 60% women as of today.
The next major step in our journey is leading the way in mental wellbeing because we know in order to be 100% authentically you, you need to be well. In 2020, we commit to offering our people leading mental health benefits and providing training to all people managers so that they are equipped to support mental health conversations.”
In addition, Ms. Burgoyne and Nicole Phillips, Regional Manager, lululemon, delivered a speech about how the company’s inclusive parental leave program empowers employees to transition back into the workplace.
