Moving the Needle: An Exploration of Sustainable Fashion

Moving the needle series 2

The Moving the Needle focuses on the sustainable future of the fashion and beauty industries.  The event series digs into career conversations with people working in fashion...including materials, policy, entrepreneurship, and beyond.

Our goals are to:

  • Inform - host events and create resources that inform students about the various types of roles that exist in sustainable fashion, and actions being taken in this space.
  • Connect - build a network of students, academics, and practitioners who want to engage and share about what's happening (and what needs to happen) in sustainable fashion.
  • Support - continue to iterate on what we can create to help support students who want to focus their careers in this area. We're open to ideas!

Speaker Series

Moving the Needle started as a speaker series featuring people working across various areas in sustainable fashion. Students hear firsthand what their jobs are like, how they might consider following a similar (or different!) pathway, and engage in conversation with people doing the work.

We are excited to continue building this program and would love ideas on where to go from here!
