Jockey Australia Statement

Jockey Australia Statement

“For 145 years, Jockey International has been a leader in responsibility when it comes to actively supporting the various ethnicities, races and backgrounds of communities and individuals in more than 140 countries around the globe, including Australia.

 

Beyond that, our commitment to responsible, ethical manufacturing as a longtime proponent of Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production (WRAP); devotion to foster care and post-adoption services through our corporate foundation, Jockey Being Family; and dedication to localized community support efforts around the world and in our hometown of Kenosha, Wis., demonstrates our brand’s long-standing commitment to uniting, uplifting and providing comfort to others.

 

Hanes Australasia, our licensing partner in Australia and New Zealand, in a sponsorship of the Australian Olympic and Paralympic teams, conducted a recent promotional photo shoot. The athletes for the photo shoot were provided by the Australian Olympic Committee (AOC). Our licensee should have been proactive in requesting a broader group of athletes for the shoot. That action would have been more reflective of the diversity of both Australian teams and Jockey’s brand values. We take this matter very seriously and are currently evaluating all of our options.”
