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.
SUSTAINABLE FASHION 101
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, we offer a range of sessions. We typically suggest starting with the Lifecycle of a T-shirt for an industry overview and foundational knowledge it provides.
Other topics in the series are customized based on your audience :
How to Spot Greenwashing / Transparency and Storytelling
Who Makes Our Clothes / Human Rights & Ethics
The 7Rs of Circular Fashion / Circular Design & Business Models
