About One Stitch Closer

Women are the fabric that holds the world together; so when they move forward we all move forward. One Stitch Closer is a new program that extends Gap’s long-standing commitment to supporting women. At the center of the program is Gap Inc. P.A.C.E. (Personal Advancement & Career Enhancement), which has provided opportunities to over 25,000 women around the world and will expand to provide education and training to even more of the women who make the company’s clothes.

One Stitch Closer will share the stories, ideas, accomplishments, and challenges of these women and other change agents, who focus on making themselves and the world better every day. This program is a small step to creating big change. By inspiring each other every day, we get one stitch closer to a brighter world.
