About the Role

Gap Inc.'s Environmental, Social, and Governance Team ("ESG") team is part of the Strategic Growth Office, which is at the forefront of driving our next chapter of growth. Leading with our values is more important than ever - both in growing our billion-dollar lifestyle brands and fueling our commitment to doing the right thing for people, planet and communities. We are guided by the belief that our business can and should be a force for good. That's why we grow purpose-led brands that shape people's way of life. The ESG team leads our work in how we ensure we have impact across our focus areas of empowering women, enabling opportunity and enriching communities.

Our Personal Advancement & Career Enhancement (P.A.C.E.) program was initially created to support women in the global apparel industry, and we have since expanded the program to community settings and more countries to unlock new possibilities for women and adolescent girls around the world. Our goal is to reach 1 million women and girls through supply chain vendor and community partnerships by 2022. As the Director US P.A.C.E., you will be at the forefront of driving impact for the work we do to empower and enable opportunities for underserved and underrepresented women and girls going forward.

Further, you will be responsible for working with the ESG leadership team to form the roadmaps and implementation plans for public/private onprofit partnerships that drive collaboration on the global scale to move Gap Inc. forward on our ESG commitments.
