This talk explores how Australian fashion brands can be a force of change by embedding and activating responsible practices into their business - through diversity, gender equality, ethical practice, and sustainability. The panel of experts weigh in on why brands should champion a purpose-led approach and what strategies they must develop to create a positive impact in a rapidly changing world.

Facilitated by Rosanna Iacono (Advisor & Partner, The Growth Activists), the panel includes Mary Lou Ryan (Director of Sustainability & Supply Chain and Co-Founder, bassike), Grace Lillian-Lee (Director, First Nations Fashion & Design), Leila Naja Hibri (CEO, Australian Fashion Council) and Grace Forrest (Founding Director, Walk Free).

This session is part of the AFC's Responsible Fashion series, supported by the City of Sydney.
