Company Updates

  • COVID-19

    Gap Inc. and Gap Foundation continue to find ways to support communities in need and the heroes on the front lines.

  • Our CEO, Mary Beth Laughton is always inspired by our customer's purpose behind their purchase. Hear what she had to say during a recent visit at Team Athleta's newest location in Long Beach, CA. "Hearing directly from customers is important, especially at this busy time of year. I find it so powerful to hear customers talk about how they shop Athleta because of our mission to empower women and girls. Many mothers are buying for their daughters so they can be active together or they are picking up tights for their favorite workout partner."

Alone we are strong, united we thrive. Together we create the Power of She.

Athleta was born in Sonoma County, created by athletes (mostly women) who love the great outdoors. We believe that being fit and active makes life richer and bigger than it could possibly be otherwise. And we’ve seen firsthand how fitness nourishes the mind, body and heart, and opens up new worlds for us. Most importantly, what we have learned along this journey is that alone we are strong, but united we thrive. Our more than 130 stores have become hubs for their communities to meet, inspire and ignite each other into realizing their limitless potential. For all women and girls, no matter our body types or sports ability, there is no end to what is possible when we join together.

That is the Power of She.

Sustainability Sustains Us

It’s about doing the right thing, especially when it’s hard. And using the power we have as a big company to make informed decisions that improve lives—for everyone, everywhere.

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Athleta (La Jolla, CA) in May 2019.


    I applied and the next day received a phone call from the hiring manager. Since I was out of state and would be moving to the area in a few weeks, my interview was over the phone.
