4th Annual Ethical & Eco Forum

Can Fashion Fight Poverty?
Wednesday, October 13, 2010
7:00PM – 9:30PM
1101 New York Ave. NW DC

FFP’s Ethical and Eco Fashion Forum continues its partnership with the foreign policy gurus at Foreign Policy Digest to create an exciting new forum to address and initiate discussion among global leaders, international policy makers, consumers, and the world’s fashion designers.

The forum, which is held the week of Fashion Fights Poverty’s annual fashion show, offers a platform to discuss issues related to eco-sustainability, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), international anti-poverty income-generating programs, global micro-finance, and the international commercial fashion industry. At the heart of all these issues is the big question: “Can Fashion Fight Poverty?”

The panel features representatives from global think tanks, international non-profit organizations, and the corporate fashion industry.

Confirmed Panelists:

Brendan Hurley: Senior Vice President of Marketing and Communications for Goodwill of Greater Washington.
Jeff Goldman: Executive Director, Fair Trade Resource Network.
Jung Hwa Song: Asia Pacific Regional Editor, Foreign Policy Digest.
Nicki Kurokawa: Director of Research Analysis, The Winston Group.
Jonathan Jacoby: Policy and Campaigns Manager Private Sector Department, Oxfam America.

Moderator: Adam Benz: Editor-in-Chief, Foreign Policy Digest.
