Who we are

lululemon is a yoga-inspired technical apparel company up to big things. The practice and philosophy of yoga informs our overall purpose to elevate the world through the power of practice. We are proud to be a growing global company with locations all around the world, from Vancouver to Shanghai, and places in between. We owe our success to our innovative product, our emphasis on our stores, our commitment to our people, and the incredible connections we get to make in every community we are in.

About this team

The lululemon culture is created by extraordinary people who are inherently genuine, inherently compassionate, and inherently inspirational. For this reason, our approach to Asset Protection seeks to leverage the inherent goodness of our people and our collective. Rather than simply enforcing a set of controls that, by definition, assume people are included to be disingenuous and dishonest, we strive to empower our people and our collective to act in harmony with each other and the world around them. This is not to suggest that certain controls are not necessary, this is to only to say that they are secondary to the role that our people and culture play in Asset Protection.
