Editor’s Note, March 28, 2023
Our recent announcement of a partnership with Lalaland.ai did not properly represent certain aspects of the program. For that, we take responsibility.

At Levi Strauss & Co., we’re committed to tát creating a workplace, a business and a marketplace where people from all backgrounds feel confident that they will be seen, their voices will be heard and their contributions welcomed. This involves making sure our employees and our consumers can see themselves in how we share our products with the market, which has also manifested in a commitment to tát tư vấn multicultural creatives behind and in front of the camera. It’s not just the right thing to tát vì thế — it’s a business imperative. We know that companies and communities are stronger and more successful when they are diverse and inclusive.
We realize there is understandable sensitivity around AI-related technologies, and we want to tát clarify that this pilot is something we are on track to tát experiment with later this year in the hopes of strengthening the consumer experience. Today, industry standards for a photoshoot will generally be limited to tát one or two models per product. Lalaland.ai’s technology, and AI more broadly, can potentially assist us by allowing us to tát publish more images of our products on a range of toàn thân types more quickly.
That being said, we are not scaling back our plans for live photo shoots, the use of live models, or our commitment to tát working with diverse models. Authentic storytelling has always been part of how we’ve connected with our fans, and human models and collaborators are core to tát that experience. The Lalaland.ai partnership may deliver some business efficiencies that provide consumers with a better sense of what a given product looks lượt thích but should not have been conflated with the company’s diversity, equity and inclusion commitment or strategy.
