Coach started as a family-run workshop in New York City in 1941. Its six
artisans set out with a simple goal: to make beautiful, functional items
in modern shapes from the finest leathers. As a pioneer in the leather goods
and accessories space, the brand went on to establish itself as the Original American
House of Leather. Coach remains inspired by its rich heritage, with the spirit
of innovation it has had for more than 75 years. Today, Coach is
part of Tapestry, Inc., a global house of brands powered by optimism,
innovation and inclusivity. Our 21,000 employees around the globe
are our greatest asset. At Tapestry, we’re devoted to fostering a work
environment that’s engaging, innovative, inclusive and diverse.
Inclusion and Diversity
Inclusion is one of our core Tapestry values. We warmly welcome all people, embracing our differences
and inviting a diversity of perspectives. At Tapestry, success is based on merit, and we believe that
anyone, from anywhere, can have the best idea.

We’re committed to equality for all of our employees, including their spouses or partners. We are honored
to be voted one of the “Best Places to Work for LGBTQ Equality” by the Human Rights Campaign
Corporate Equality Index, which we have had for 5 years starting in 2013. We are committed to
maintaining our 100% score on the Corporate Equality Index annual survey going forward.
“When I started at Coach, one of the values of it that I loved
is the idea that it’s inclusive—that it’s open. New York City
is a cultural melting pot, so it’s a celebration of that.”
STUART VEVERS, COACH EXECUTIVE CREATIVE DIRECTOR
Let’s face it, health insurance and benefits are important. Our employees are our most valuable assets
and we’re committed to providing them with progressive benefits that are relevant to today’s needs.
Over 20 years ago, Coach instituted equivalent spouse and same-sex partner benefits for medical, dental,
vision and dependent coverage. We also provide equal benefits for bereavement leave, employer-provided
supplemental life insurance for a partner and adoption assistance.
In recent years, our health care coverage has expanded to include coverage for transgender individuals,
without exclusion, for medically necessary care. We also extend benefits for services
related to gender transition.
Coach was recently honored with two awards in China: Top 100 Employer of Excellence in China and
Excellence in HR Management Team. Selected from over 380,000 companies, the awards recognize our
efforts in talent acquisition, retention and development, as well as our commitment to drive innovative
HR initiatives and provide our employees an engaging working environment.
