Procter & Gamble Co (NYSE: PG) is teaming with Archewell Foundation, the nonprofit created by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, in what is described as a multiyear global partnership designed to build “more compassionate communities” around the world.

What Happened: The financial aspects of the partnership were not disclosed, nor was there a detailing of how the conglomerate and the royal couple planned to enact their new, shared mission.

However, Archewell Foundation released a press statement saying “the partnership will focus on gender equality, more inclusive online spaces, and resilience and impact through sport.”

The statement cited the new partners’ joint work on the recent “Vax Live: The Concert to Reunite the World,” an event coordinated by the nonprofit Global Citizen that focused on improving international access to COVID-19 vaccines, as well as their support of Harvest Home, a Los Angeles homeless shelter for expectant mothers.
