Dubbed ‘Power of the Collective Council’, the advisory board is expected to partner with Gap Inc. to create access, drive awareness, and advocate for historically marginalized and vulnerable communities.

The Council’s strategy is aligned to three strategic pillars — Community, Customer, and Employee — with each member focusing on a component of the business that leverages their specialized areas of expertise and amplifies a core focus area of diversity and inclusion for Gap Inc.

“Creating a culture of belonging where we all feel seen and respected for who we are is as critical to the success of our company as it is for the communities we serve,” said Sonia Syngal

Cabral has partnered with Gap Inc. since 2018, to advance internal inclusion efforts through employee workshops, executive coaching, and facilitated discussions.

Under the guidance of the new council, Gap Inc. said it also aims to further its Equality and Belonging commitments in the coming year.
