How to Enable a Just, Fair, and Inclusive Transition to Circular Fashion
The environmental and commercial benefits of a transition to circular fashion are clear, but the social impacts have received less attention.
While a shift to circularity will create new roles and important opportunities for entrepreneurship, there are also serious challenges around marginalized groups, reskilling, and labor market disruption. Please join us in conversation with leading industry experts to explore these issues. This event will share key findings and recommendations from Keeping Workers in the Loop (KWIL), BSR’s 18-month exploration of the job impacts of the circular fashion transition in collaboration with industry leaders and stakeholders. Our expert panel will discuss how to catalyze public and private sector action and collaboration as key elements in ensuring a just, fair, and inclusive transition to a circular fashion system.
KWIL has been supported by Laudes Foundation and the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida); is led by BSR, in partnership with Catalyst Management Services, India and economists from the University of Lincoln; and includes H&M Group, Shahi Exports, The Renewal Workshop, Target, and VF Corporation as industry partners.
