Today, Fashiondex and LIM College continue their sustainable conversations partnership at the virtual Fashion and Sustainability Summit 2020 series with a panel conversation on transparency, traceability and accountability technologies for fashion.
The one-hour conversation will dig into if and how technology can successfully assist fashion brands in solving the issues of transparency along their supply chain tiers.
The event will be held on Zoom at 1 p.m. EST/10 a.m. PST and features four fashion technology experts, all who have founded their own technology-solution-driven businesses, that will share their work towards software solutions and discuss the challenges and opportunities in transparency and accountability in the global fashion industry. The speakers are Suuchi Ramesh, founder and CEO, Suuchi Inc.; Leonardo Bonanni, founder and CEO, Sourcemap Inc.; Ilke Jordan, founder and CEO, Jordan Alliance Group and Michelle Alleyne, founder and sustainable fashion strategist, M Shop NYC and Sustainability Faculty, LIM College.
The panel is sponsored by Eco-Life Yarns, Kendor Texties and the Accessories Council and is the twelfth installment of the Fashiondex and LIM College Fashion and Sustainability Summit.
“I can’t wait for Thursday’s panel on sustainability and technology because, at least in the sustainability space, we often ask if technology has helped or hurt the Earth,” said Andrea Kennedy, LIM College member and founder and sustainability lead at Fashiondex. “If the latest technological advancements can reduce the negative social and environmental impacts of fashion, then that is hopeful, optimistic and exciting! Please join us as we all learn.”
