When Cathy Slater, senior vice president, Global Cellulose Fibers, visited India, she learned that the lack of access to feminine hygiene resources inhibited young women from attending school. She never dreamed the same issue affects young women in Memphis. Last January, we responded by mobilizing our people, products and resources to answer the call to improve girls’ access to feminine hygiene products in local schools. This video illustrates International Paper’s 2019 employee engagement effort to address period poverty in Memphis.
