Women Leaders in Sustainability

What are female leaders doing differently to make sustainability the default in the fashion and finance industries? What were their challenges on the path to leadership? What achievements have been made and what opportunities remain in their industries in terms of sustainability?

Join us for an in-person panel discussion among women leading in sustainability. Moderated by Kelly A. Burton, Founder and CEO, The ESG Shop, this panel will include a keynote by Vogue Business senior sustainability editor, Rachel Cernansky, and women leaders in the fashion and finance industries including:  

  • Bernice Pan, CEO and Chief Creative Officer, Deploy
