Corporate IMPACT Champion

Rick Goings

Some things just cannot wait. Men must stand up now for women's equality. Why am I a HeForShe Champion? Not just because I can't wait, but because I will not wait.

Impact Commitments

Audit the full Tupperware Brands network to drive gender parity to the last mile.

Tupperware Brands will undertake a comprehensive audit of each and every piece of its value chain, to drive gender equality at all levels. The audit will include a gender analysis of all permanent staff, including in the 14 factories that produce Tupperware Brands products. Based on the outcomes of the audit, Tupperware Brands will develop a gender action plan to achieve 50/50 equality in every part of the business value and supply chain. Throughout the audit process, Tupperware Brands will publicly report on progress, as a part of its commitment to the Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs).

Lead groundbreaking research on the business case for women’s economic empowerment.

Tupperware Brands is excited to partner with Georgetown University, on a first-of-its-kind research study that examines the relationship between women’s confidence and economic success, with the goal of demonstrating that women’s confidence is a key driver of economic development globally. Tupperware Brands will apply these findings to its own corporate social responsibility strategy, deepening its efforts to empower women and advance gender equality around the world.

Create a HeForShe workforce, driving towards the 1B target through Tupperware Brands staff and 3M sales force.

Tupperware Brands will use its broad national and global reach to drive awareness of and commitments to HeForShe. Tupperware Brands will work from the top down—with Chairman & CEO Rick Goings and other leaders standing up as ‘HeForShe’ champions, as well as leveraging its global grassroots networks. Tupperware Brands’ sales force is comprised of almost 3M people in more than 80 markets around the world. Central to this commitment, sales force members will be educated on HeForShe, invited to commit online, and encouraged to bring their families and communities into the conversation to help HeForShe reach its 1B goal.
