Help us plan the launch of our inclusive digital fashion platform so that we can tackle inequality in the industry and help promote the wellbeing of society as a whole.
What we want the volunteer to do
We want to create a scalable digital fashion ecosystem that enables users to collaboratively create, sell and design circular products that prioritise people over profit without sacrificing the environment. We’re in the very early stages and are looking to get funding to launch the MVP of our tech platform.
We require help to:
What is the key deliverable?
Who will work with the volunteer?
No prior experience in fashion is required.
Your input will help us develop the first version of our digital platform for a wider audience. Through your support, we will be able to build a circular fashion ecosystem that serves its people and communities, first and foremost through fair work, gender equality, social inclusion, and shared prosperity across all segments of the fashion industry.
Why care about the fashion industry?
Fashion is more than just glitz, glamour, and catwalks. Along its value chain, it employs more than 60 million people and clothes billions of people worldwide. Women comprise 60 to 90 per cent of total apparel workers, of whom an estimated 80 per cent are women of colour.
Due to its sheer size, the sector already faces numerous social challenges, including low wages, violence, harassment, and unsafe work conditions. Furthermore, the pandemic has dramatically affected the lives of women and young people working in the industry, negating any gains made in reducing forced labour and child labour and raising poverty levels.
By focusing on changing fashion, we can harness a $5 trillion industry to create an inclusive and equitable space that supports human wellbeing and the flourishing of society as a whole.
