“I was training in India last month and discovered a true Shero. Aarti builds relationships with women in her community and is an active leader in a place where being a woman can be difficult. She has recruited a team of 35 individuals (27 of these she is personally responsible for hiring and four managers she referred) for a support team for Inventory Management in Hyderabad, India.
Aarti has recruited women to work in a mostly male-dominated group. She believes women can be as successful in this job as men, and she deserves recognition for her efforts. She really is a woman in leadership development. After working closely with this group, I believe she is an inspiration to many. Aarti looks for both large and small ways to make a positive impact in people’s lives every day.” – Aarti’s team member

Additionally, Sears Holdings maintains The Safe Space Program, which is a way for associates to express their support for LGBT associates. To be a certified member of the Safe Space Program, associates must complete online training. Once associates complete The Safe Space Program training, they are provided a badge to display in their workspace. The badge was created as a visible, non-threatening way to show LGBT support and identify the space as a “safe space” for all associates. As LGBT allies, associates pledge to:
- Respect confidentiality
- Avoid assumptions and stereotyping
- Try using gender-neutral terms when talking about significant others, spouses and partners
- Educate themselves about issues facing the LGBT community
