PVH Corp. Celebrates NYC Pride 2018
Continuing a long-standing commitment to an inclusive environment where every individual is valued, PVH will participate in the NYC Pride March as a Platinum Sponsor for the third year in a row.

PVH is dedicated to putting people first, with inclusion and diversity at the center of how the company does business. This year, PVH co-authored an industry briefing with the Council of Fashion Designers of America to hold the apparel industry accountable to be both inclusive and diverse. PVH also was recognized by Forbes magazine on the Best Employers for Diversity 2019 list and received a perfect score of 100 on the 2019 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), administered by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation.
