The digital event takes place tomorrow, November 18, at 5pm.
The Black Lives Matter movement that took to the streets earlier this year has sparked many conversations and pledges to do better at stamping out systemic racism. But is true, lasting change happening? And how have fashion brands fared over the last several months? These are among the questions that will be addressed at Inclusion Revolution, a digital discussion on the importance of BIPOC voices in fashion, design, culture and media in Canada.
Moderator and fashion lawyer Anjli Patel will lead the talk, scheduled for November 18 at 5pm, which is aimed at encouraging all of us to find ways to promote racial equity in our personal and professional lives.
Panelists include Dahabo Ahmed-Omer, executive director of BlackNorth; Riley Kucheran, an assistant professor at Ryerson University School of Fashion; Sage Paul, founding artistic director at Indigenous Fashion Week Toronto; Dori Tunstall, dean of the Faculty of Design at OCAD University; and FASHION editor-in-chief Bernadette Morra, who led the transformation of FASHION from a traditional women’s magazine to a brand for all ages, sizes, genders, ethnicities and orientations earlier this year.
Inclusion Revolution is the second in a series of race-based discussions created by Len D. Henry of Delectant Media. This latest talk takes place on November 18 at 5pm EST at Mode Canada Rocks where you can also view the first event, “Black Canadian Style: Here’s the thing…”. Register for the free event here.
