Conscious Fashion: A Case for Radical Change
January 16 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm$25.00
Fashion, as an industry, is a powerful tool for global growth and development, but the prevailing paradigm is pushing the earth beyond its planetary limits and challenging social justice.
Join Amy Hall, Vice President of Social Consciousness at EILEEN FISHER, Anthea Kelsick, CMO at B Labs, and other conscious fashion leaders for an agenda-setting discussion on the most critical environmental, social, and ethical issues facing the industry, people, and our planet. Moderated by Laura Hall of WHYZ Partners.
This is the first in a quarterly series where we will explore topics around the common theme of Business as a Force for Good.
As the NYC Chapter of Conscious Capitalism, our purpose is to connect, inspire, and activate Conscious Capitalists in the NYC community. Living in a leading business, financial, and cultural hub gives us a unique opportunity to create a paradigm shift by spreading the principles of Conscious Capitalism. We are business leaders united by the shared desire to make work more meaningful and elevate humanity through business.
