“We’ve had these moments where the industry has taken stock, but they haven’t fully committed to inclusivity in the way that they need to. We realized we needed to do something different than we’ve ever done before,” Peoples’ said in an interview. 

Those who sign up will be given the next six months to work with the council’s board members from different factors of the industry. Long-term devotion and participation are required for at least three years.

The Black In Fashion Council plans on holding groups and organizations accountable with what can be described as a yearly public report card that will share data on employee representation, campaigns, corporate culture, and will contribute to their overall index score.
