Frank & Eileen supports future female leaders with 10-million-dollars donation

Los Angeles-based shirting brand Frank & Eileen has pledged 10
million dollars to nurture female leaders of tomorrow. The company
will donate this amount over the next ten years.

Frank & Eileen began this commitment with a donation of 300
thousand dollars to Malala Fund. Founded by Nobel laureate Malala
Yousafzai, the international non-profit organization advocates for
girls’ education across the globe.

“Millions of girls are at risk of never returning to school when
this pandemic is over,” said Suzanne Ehlers, CEO of Malala Fund, said
in a press release. “To keep girls on track, we’re supporting
locally-led initiatives that are helping girls continue their
education from home and fighting for policies that will allow girls to
return when schools reopen.”

Frank & Eileen’s pledge follows its recent B-Corp certification.

“Since day one, we have sought to create a product and a company
that is the antithesis of fast fashion in every way,” Audrey
McLoghlin, the company’s founder, commented. “But certifications
matter, especially as we face an unprecedented moment of change in the
global fashion industry. We’re so proud that our practices meet the
highest bar set by the global B Corp movement, and embrace the
opportunity to double down on our values as we head into our second
decade.”
