Webinar Series

Fashion Takes Action is a non-profit established in 2007, with a mission to advance sustainability in the entire fashion system through education, awareness, research and collaboration. In 2014, we launched the World Ethical Apparel Roundtable (WEAR) – now a monthly webinar series –
that brings together thousands of global fashion industry stakeholders to learn from
leading experts and academics. Scroll down for past recordings!

industry tools, standards & certifications

With the rise of sustainability in the fashion industry, comes an equal number of claims, which if not verified, authentic and transparent can lead to greenwashing. This in turn can cause confusion and a lack of trust among consumers. Thankfully, there are various environmental and social standards, certifications and tools that brands can use to manage sustainability throughout their supply chains, increase their transparency and accountability, and provide a credible guarantee to both consumers and investors.

Each month, Fashion Takes Action addresses barriers to sustainability through our monthly WEAR webinar series. This month we are addressing Equity, Diversity & Inclusion in fashion and the significant role race plays in your sustainability journey. 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.

Check back soon – these sessions will be announced shortly!
