The fashion industry, globally expansive yet minimally regulated, stands as the world's second most polluting sector. Recognizing its impact on the climate crisis and exploitative social dimensions, decision-makers and politicians worldwide are increasingly advocating for sustainable fashion through public policy. Join us for an enlightening evening delving into the intersection of politics, fashion, and the environment. Explore current global socio-environmental policies in fashion and their consequential effects with distinguished speakers:

- Michelle Gabriel, Graduate Program Director for Sustainable Fashion at Glasgow Caledonian New York College
- Shona Barton Quinn, Senior Director, Social Consciousness at Eileen Fisher
- Mark Anner, Professor, Labor and Employment Relations and Director, Center for Global Workers’ Rights at Penn State
- Dr. Anna R. Kelles, New York Assemblymember (sponsor of the New York Fashion Act)
- Dr.Meital Peleg Mizrachi, Postdoctoral fellow in Yale's Dept of Economics, researching environmental regulation on fashion

There will be a zoom component for those that will like to join virtually.

The talk will be 5:00 - 6:00 pm, followed by heavy apps, beverages and networking! *We are committed to reducing waste at our event. Therefore, we ask that when you register, you commit to doing your best to attend.
