Personal Advancement & Career Enhancement
P.A.C.E is GAP Inc.’s proprietary holistic life-skills training program for Female Garment Workers. The garment industry employs a majority female workforce. These women often lack access to formal education and training to progress personally and professionally. P.A.C.E. has been designed to allow them to unlock their true potential and fulfil their dreams. Shahi was the first organization to run P.A.C.E. in its factories and has extended capsule versions of this program to key influencers in P.A.C.E. participants’ lives, including their male co-workers, supervisors and family members. Since launching in 2007, the program has expanded beyond factories to include women and girls in community settings.
