Webinar Series

Fashion Takes Action is a non-profit established in 2007, with a mission to advance sustainability in the fashion industry through education, awareness, research and collaboration. Since 2014, our World Ethical Apparel Roundtable, or WEAR conference
and webinar series, has brought together the entire fashion system to
learn, network and collaborate. Each month, we address the barriers to
sustainability through our WEAR webinar series.

EQUITY, DIVERSITY & INCLUSION

An integral component of sustainability is the ability to embrace diverse communities and the unique voices they support. With increasing challenges related to climate change, resource scarcity and population growth, it is more important than ever that we work together to create a more resilient world.

This month is an opportunity to hear the voices that have been in the shadows for too long as we shine a spotlight on those who are leading change. You will learn how you and your company can help to dismantle the existing colonial framework, and rebuild a culture of inclusivity on the path to sustainability.

Each month, Fashion Takes Action addresses barriers to sustainability through our monthly WEAR webinar series.

This series is an opportunity to hear the voices that have been in the shadows for too long, shine a spotlight on those who are leading change, learn how to help dismantle the existing colonial framework and rebuild a culture of inclusivity on the path to sustainability.
