We are so excited about our virtual Fashion Policy and Social Justice Summit on June 10, in partnership with LVMH and Kering. As a way to continue higher learning in fashion policy and social justice, weâ€™re offering a limited number of scholarships to students and recent grads for our upcoming summit.
Interested students and recent grads should send their name, college or university, and two sentences on why theyâ€™re interested in participating in the virtual summit to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Social Justice Summit will bring together diverse voices from Congress, government agencies, industry and academiaâ€”as we discuss allyship in addressing systemic racism, corporate engagement in civil rights issues, collaboration culture and climate policy through the lens of BIPOC designers and social entrepreneurs. Weâ€™ll have a special keynote with Congressional Black Caucus Chair Joyce Beatty (D-OH), and Congresswoman Grace Meng (D-NY) will open our racial equity panel to discuss her COVID-19 Hate Crimes Act that President Biden recently signed into law.
We’ve also confirmed designer Mimi Plange for our panel on intellectual property and collaboration culture, where she’ll discuss her new partnership with LeBron James and Nike. Congressman Mondaire Jones (D-NY) will provide special remarks for the IP panel, and will be joined by senior leadership from Louis Vuitton Americas, Kering Americas, Dunnington Bartholow & Miller LLP, and the Recording Industry Association of America. Professor Susan Scafidi of the Fashion Law Institute at Fordham Law School will moderate the IP panel.
Register today for the first-of-its-kind summit focused on fashion policy, brand protection and climate solutions through the lens of talent of color. We look forward to seeing you virtually on June 10!
