A PLACE WHERE GREAT PEOPLE WANT TO WORK
Tapestry is devoted to being an engaging, innovative, inclusive and diverse workplace. During 2019, we established new goals for expanding diversity in our North America Tapestry and brand leadership teams, and reducing gaps in feelings of inclusion by gender and ethnicity across our employee population globally.
Inclusion and Diversity
Inclusion is one of our core Tapestry values. We warmly welcome all people, embracing our differences and inviting a diversity of perspectives. At Tapestry, success is based on merit, and we believe that anyone, from anywhere, can have the best idea.
