SAN FRANCISCO, Mar. 07 /CSRwire/ – BSR‘s HERproject-a factory-based women’s health initiative-has significantly improved women’s health awareness, leadership skills, and relationships with their employers, according to a new BSR report revealing results of research conducted after the first year of HERproject programs in China, Egypt, India, Mexico, Pakistan, and Vietnam.
“Not only has HERproject given women the knowledge to improve their health behavior, it has empowered them to seek leadership roles in their jobs and their communities,” said HERproject Manager Racheal Yeager. “The peer-to-peer model-with women teaching each other about women’s health-has given them the confidence to go against the grain in regions where the traditional role for women is not as strong.”
