Change the World: Learning to Soar Like Eagles


Last fall, in honor of being named to the Fortune Change the World list for 2017, Levi Strauss & Co. gave grants to five employees who had bold ideas of their own for creating change.

Dominique Durward, retail training and development manager at LS&Co., was one of those aspiring changemakers – and recently, she put her plan into action for a group of high schoolers in Cape Town, South Africa called the Ukhozi Girls Club. The girls were encouraged to soar like eagles – ukhozi – and be fearless in their journey to realizing their dreams through a series of workshops in partnership with the nonprofit Tomorrow Trust and author Brent Feinberg,

Take a look at the video that Dominique and the group put together to highlight the inspiring journey they shared with the girls.

We recently received the news that we’ve been named to the Fortune Change the World list for the second year in a row – and we can’t wait to see what our employees come up with this time in their quest to make a difference.
