We celebrate women and are committed to inspiring and empowering ladies to love themselves from the inside and out.

In the U.S. alone, one in eight women will develop breast cancer and 30 million Americans will struggle with an eating disorder at some point in their lives. Our Aerie brand focuses on body positivity and breast cancer awareness—two causes that affect the lives of our customers and associates every day. We’re proud of the meaningful partnerships we’ve developed that encourage body positivity and promote health and wellness.

Bright Pink

Did you know that breast cancer is the leading cancer diagnosis among women? That’s why Aerie supports Bright Pink, the only national nonprofit organization focused on prevention and early detection of breast and ovarian cancer in young women. Our partnership aims to spark important conversations among women about the risk of breast and ovarian cancer and inspire them to take action, while also raising funds to fuel Bright Pink’s life-saving education programs.

National Eating Disorders Association

Unrealistic, retouched images can contribute to poor self-esteem and play a role in the rising epidemic of eating disorders. In February 2015, as part of our commitment to promoting body positivity, Aerie became the first retailer to partner with National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA) to focus on body positivity and help reduce the prevalence of and stigma around eating disorders.

Since 2015, Aerie has sponsored 204 NEDA Walks in the U.S. to encourage body positivity and help raise awareness around eating disorders.

Strong, Beautiful, Me

In 2016, Aerie launched our Strong, Beautiful, Me campaign to support NEDA in spreading the word about National Eating Disorders Awareness Week. We donate 100% of sales from our Strong, Beautiful, Me limited edition t-shirt to NEDA each year.

Improving Women Factory Workers’ Health

We are committed to promoting the health and well-being of the women who make our products in our global supply chain. We are working with our factory partners to expand participation in Business for Social Responsibility’s (BSR’s) HERproject, a collaborative initiative that strives to empower low-income women working in global supply chains.

To date, HERproject has been implemented at four factories in Cambodia and six factories in Bangladesh, with efforts underway at two factories in Vietnam. As part of HERproject, we help train peer educators and participate in a Technical Advisory Group that’s focused on developing a nurse training program, as well as a program focused on addressing sexual harassment. With HERproject, we’re not just investing in women, we’re investing in their families and communities around the world.
