Gucci Pre Fall 2017

Italian house Gucci is the first luxury fashion brand to join Parks, an Italian nonprofit helping companies to enhance diversity and inclusion.

According to WWD, “Gucci is the first luxury fashion brand to join Parks — Liberi e Uguali [Free and Equal in English], an Italian nonprofit organization aimed at supporting partner companies in the development of strategies and practices respecting diversity, with a focus on sexual orientation and gender identity.”

“We are extremely proud to join Parks, and we could not identify a better moment to start the partnership with this inspiring organization,” said Gucci president and chief executive officer Marco Bizzarri. “In the past two years, we have implemented a complete turnaround of our company, following our mantra of being the voice of self-expression. Attracting, retaining and promoting talent, while celebrating ethnic, age, sexual and gender diversity, sexual orientation and gender identity across the company, is our mission, which is completely consistent with the vision of our parent company, Kering.”

Parks was founded in 2010, it offers companies a range of customized activities, including education, training, communication services, as well as advice on pay policies and benefits, all aimed at guaranteeing inclusive and respectful working environments.

Last month, we reported that Gucci’s Pre-Fall 2017 ad campaign will feature all Black models (see it here).
