The programme aims to increase diverse supplier products and service solutions; empower economically & socially disadvantaged organisations; foster business growth, job and wealth creation across diverse communities.

The programme reiterates lululemon’s commitment towards fair and inclusive business practices by creating systemic changes in the way it engages with diverse suppliers supporting their long-term growth.

“At lululemon, we are committed to our Impact Agenda and IDEA commitments, which include reflecting the diversity of the communities we serve and operate in by 2025 and creating an environment that is equitable, inclusive and fosters growth,” said Stacia Jones, Vice President, Global Head of IDEA.

“Within our supply chain, we have an important opportunity and responsibility to support these goals by ensuring inclusivity in every practicable sourcing event…We are pleased to launch our Supplier Inclusion and Diversity Programme and look forward to working with talented and diverse new partners that will add competitive value to our company.”

lululemon’s IDEA Supplier Inclusion and Diversity Programme is being rolled out in the US in a phased manner following which it will be expanded to Canada and other key international markets by 2026.
