Employee Education & Engagement

Employee engagement has been noted as one of the most important factors in overall company success. It has become a way not only for CSR departments to help further their sustainability efforts and ESG goals, but also for HR departments to drive engagement which we know is linked to employee retention, morale and satisfaction.

Based on the success of Fashion Takes Action’s youth education program, My Clothes My World, which has reached more than 30,000 students aged 8-17 across Canada, Fashion Takes Action is excited to offer a Sustainable Fashion 101, an employee education and engagement program, for the adult learner.

Our 101 program is designed to engage ALL employees – at all levels – in the positive social and environmental impact your company is making, and why it is taking action. It is designed for any company, recognizing that all employees wear clothes, right!? For fashion brands and retailers, however, our content can be customized to speak not only to what your company is doing to reduce negative social and environmental impacts, but why you are taking action. Understanding the context for your sustainability initiatives will enable your employees to respond with confidence to stakeholder and customer inquiries, likewise empowering them to become brand ambassadors and even more conscious consumers.


Fashion is a fun and relevant way to connect to issues around social and environmental impacts, regardless of your business or industry. Our multi-series program is delivered virtually in a Lunch ‘n’ Learn style allowing as many or as few employees to tune in as you like.
Sessions are recorded and made available so that you can share them with staff who are unable to attend.


Depending on your goals and type of business you’re in, we offer a range of sessions. We typically suggest starting with the Lifecycle of a T-shirt for a basic overview given the foundational knowledge that this session provides. 

Additional topics in the series are customized based on your audience : 

How to Spot Greenwashing / Traceability & Transparency* 

Who Makes Our Clothes / Human Rights & Ethics*

The 7Rs of Circular Fashion / Circular Design & Business Models

* If you are a Canadian fashion brand required to report on the “Fighting Against Forced Labour and Child Labour in Supply Chains Act” / Bill S-211, the sessions marked with an asterisk will fulfill the requirement to provide training to employees on forced labour and child labour.
