Mercy College School of Business students recently had the opportunity to tour the Eileen Fisher facility in Irvington. Director of Social Consciousness at Eileen Fisher Amy Hall gave the students the tour and exposed the Business Leaders students to the various aspects of social consciousness at Eileen Fisher. Hall explained the team’s mission of working to benefit women with things like fair compensation, better working conditions and human rights; as well as helping the planet in terms of climate change, clean supply change and clothing recycling among other things. Students were exposed to their “four pillars” of corporate social responsibility: people, planet, products and profits.

 

"The visit was eye-opening for students in our Business Leaders Program.  It showed them corporate social responsibility, the cornerstone of our program, brought to life at Eileen Fisher.  The commitment made to help educate our students by Amy Hall and her the team at Eileen Fisher was simply outstanding," said School of Business Professor Susan Cooper.

 

In addition to meeting with Hall and her team, students were invited to attend a closed event at Eileen Fisher’s SoHo store later this month where the company will be supporting women who were recently released from prison. Eileen Fisher’s goal is to help these women reintegrate into society and help them become productive citizens.
