LONDON - A Marks and Spencer (M&S) programme to promote gender equality in garment factories in its global supply chain is resuming after a two year halt triggered by the global coronavirus pandemic.

The POWER (Providing Opportunities to Women for Equal Rights) initiative, also supported by the British High Commission and the Change Alliance consultancy, aims to promote gender equality, and prevent discrimination and violence against women.

Its next phase will focus on 15 factories which employ more than 1,500 workers in India. Since an initial pilot phase in 2016, 36,436 women have been through the POWER programme in the Indian cities of Bengaluru, Gurugram and Manesar.
