Where:  250 Park Avenue, 5th floor New York, NY 10177

When:  Wednesday, November 13, 2019 6-8pm

The Business and Sustainability of the Fashion Industry is a panel discussion organized by the USC Marshall Alumni Association of New York and USC Alumni Association of New York.
You are invited to an evening of thought to talk action on rebuilding the system for a planetary ecology and just, global community.
In 2018, the U.N. declared the fashion industry a “social and environmental emergency.”
In order to change a system’s output (food, energy, transportation, real estate, fashion), we have to change the system drivers.
Finance is a system driver comparable to gravity in the physical world. Yet, only 15% of all financial flows goes to investment in the real economy; the rest cycles in the financial system itself, sustaining a carbon economy at ecological brink.
  • Fine Arts faculty Jane Philbrick
  • Julie Tong, commerce editor at Vogue
  • Sharon Lungrin, financier and co-founder, @aeternallovers, a Bronx music and clothing brand will be panelists.

Randy Ramirez, managing director at Arthur J. Gallagher & Co., will moderate.
