Our founders are truly global citizens with family histories spanning over half the globe, from India to East Africa to Canada. They know the importance of looking beyond one’s own backyard to recognize we all belong to an interdependent global village.
MPG/Mondetta was built on a foundation of hard work and understanding that doing the right thing is the right thing to do. From minimizing our environmental impacts to ensuring our products are attainable for everyday people, our founders have instilled a culture of always doing things the right way, never cutting corners, and giving back to the communities that helped them prosper.
Getting Involved in Our Community
MPG/Mondetta has implemented a paid volunteer program for all staff members. Partnering with local businesses, we’re sponsoring employees to volunteer with local charities/organizations with 2 paid volunteer days a year. In 2022, we partnered with Winnipeg Harvest (a local food bank) to have over 25 staff members volunteer at their distribution centre.
We’re looking forward to expanding and growing this initiative to more worthy causes and charitable organizations making a difference in our community.
Our Diverse Workforce
When a company has a global perspective from the top, you see things differently.
We embrace diversity in our workforce, with over 40 nationalities represented, 30% of our workforce identifying as a visible minority, and over 70% identifying as female; we believe that when we learn from our differences, we all benefit.
We’re creating clothing for a global community; you can only achieve that with an internationally representative workforce.
Support for Indigenous Students
Residing on Treaty 1 Territory and the ancestral lands of the Anishinaabeg, Anishininewuk, Dakota Oyata, Desuline, Nehethowuk nations and the homeland of the Red River Métis, MPG/Mondetta believes in reconciling with and supporting our indigenous communities.
In that vein, we pledge over $150,000 annually to indigenous students in the Winnipeg area, providing financial aid through the Business Council of Manitoba Indigenous Education Awards.
