I lead the development and implementation of our sustainable raw materials strategy. Because resources are finite and using raw materials comes with an environmental and social burden, I truly believe that we need to change our current paradigm. I am proud to do my part towards reducing the industry’s footprint and helping to unlock new value in materials.
I spearhead the foundation’s efforts to improve working conditions for garment workers across the industry. I’m here because I believe that transforming fashion into a force for good means fundamentally changing the status quo - changing relationships and the way that things have always been done. We have the mandate and guts to support organisations that are doing this difficult and important work.
I manage our programmes to ensure women’s rights and combat forced labour, especially in Asia. I believe that, together with our partners on the ground, the foundation can change the global apparel supply chain so that millions of women can have fair and just working conditions.
I believe each one us is responsible for making a positive impact on the people who make our clothing. I am proud to do my part working to support the efforts of the Sustainable Raw Materials team in Asia.
I manage our sustainable cotton programme, especially across Asia and Africa. I believe that market-based solutions can address development challenges at scale. I test this belief daily by exploring new models and solutions for improving farmer livelihoods and conserving the environment.
I'm here to assist the supply chain innovation team in Asia to achieve their big goal, which is to improve the working conditions of the workers in the apparel industry.
I manage the data collection, analysis and research activities for our sustainable raw material programmes in Asia and Africa, in order to support programme design and delivery. I also support sustainable cotton programmes in India specifically. I believe that addressing market failures and creating market-based solutions are effective ways to develop that provide long term economic and environment sustainability.
I manage several of our grants in Asia that help factory workers, helping to bring much-needed transparency to the supply chain and ones that help to empower workers to achieve improvements that matter to them. I do this because I’m passionate about finding and supporting ground-breaking ideas that can bring meaningful change to the garment industry.
I manage our working conditions grants in Bangladesh. I believe that the way to create long term improvements in the textile industry is to aim big and set up initiatives in collaboration with other industry stakeholders. Initiatives with quantifiable results can self-finance and become sustainable after the initial push, and can be replicated.
I support partners who are amplifying the voices of garment workers, and making the industry more transparent. By shining a light on the reality of factory conditions we can guide and motivate the industry to make improvements that matter most to workers.
My job is to ensure we are able to measure results in a robust way and to learn what works and what doesn’t. I believe that we must be able to provide evidence of our achievements towards meeting our goal in order to make fashion a force for good.
