Over the past two years Hayward worked to align leaders and create actionable change through a focused Equity, Inclusion and Diversity strategy at Tapestry, a global house of brands including Coach, Kate Spade and Stuart Weitzman. Under Hayward’s leadership Tapestry has introduced a diverse slate requirement in the recruiting process, increased transparency in posting open roles, established an inclusion index engagement goal and tied leadership incentive compensation to Equity, Inclusion and Diversity goals. This work also led to Tapestry’s first-ever ERGs – The Black Alliance, Prouder Together, Asian Heritage Alliance and Working Parents & Caregivers – which are partnering to transforming Tapestry’s culture. Along with executive sponsors and a small group of resolute employees, Hayward has created a framework and governance to set diverse communities up for success.
