Inclusivity At The Forefront: The Time Is Now For Brands To Change

SIA, in partnership with the Outdoor Industry Association and Outdoor Retailer, is co-hosting the Keynote Industry Breakfast to kick off the new OR Winter Online format.

Description: Customers, employees and other stakeholders are demanding more than just words – they are expecting real action and accountability on diversity and inclusion. In response, Lindsay Peoples Wagner, who has shaped the Teen Vogue brand to be a model for inclusivity, social values and community, co-founded the Black in Fashion Council. The council has enlisted the support of the Human Rights Campaign to provide benchmarking around corporate policies and practices pertinent to the inclusivity of Black employees and to establish an Equality Index Score.

In her keynote presentation, Peoples Wagner will walk through the components of this index, flag harmful practices and provide actionable steps to increase inclusivity and make employees of color feel seen and heard. You’ll learn what brands should do (and not do) to authentically reflect and connect with customers, employees, stakeholders and their communities.
