On the occasion of International Women's Day, Alain Caparros, CEO C&A Europe, described C&A’s commitment to gender parity as a key principle of the company’s culture. “Gender parity and women's empowerment are extremely important to C&A. Women are the driving force behind the apparel industry and our brand: 80% of our employees are women, and approximately the same percentage is true of the workers in our supply chain and the customers who shop with us. The WEPs will guide us to further implement gender parity throughout our organisation and supply chain.”
