Eileen Fisher is the Founder and Chairwoman of EILEEN FISHER, INC.
In 2016, the company became the largest women’s fashion organization to be certified a B Corporation, having met high criteria for social and environmental performance, accountability and transparency. EILEEN FISHER is the largest B Corp in the state of New York. In 2015, the company announced VISION2020, a bold five-year plan that addresses sustainability and human rights. In keeping with Eileen’s belief in collaboration, VISION2020 calls for co-leading with other brands to transform the fashion industry.
Given Eileen’s commitment to the development and growth of the whole person, she recently launched LIFEWORK – a personal transformation initiative that invites participants to explore purpose, mindfulness and embodiment through a variety of online and in-person workshops and events. LIFEWORK programs are offered to company employees, business organizations and the public.
In 2017, Parsons New School of Design honored Eileen at their annual gala for her work in sustainability. Eileen was selected to join the Steering Committee for New York State’s Inaugural Council on Women and Girls. Launched by Governor Andrew Cuomo, the committee was formed to ensure that government policies and programs protect women’s rights and equality advancement in the state. Eileen was presented the Force for Good Award by the Committee Encouraging Corporate Philanthropy (CECP) in February 2016. She is a 2012 inductee into the Social Venture Network Hall of Fame.
