The New York-based fashion group Tapestry announced its participation in the Black in Fashion Council Active Allyship Pledge. Members of the program commit to joining together to secure the advancement of Black individuals in the fashion and beauty industry.
“We have committed to expanding diversity in our Tapestry and brand leadership teams. Working with the Council will help us to build upon the progress that we have made in achieving these goals,” said Joanne Crevoiserat, the company’s CEO.
Over the course of the next three years, Tapestry will work with Black in Fashion Council’s executive board members, who will provide feedback, insight and counsel.
Tapestry has been listed on the Forbes “Best Employers for Diversity” list for four consecutive years. Last month, the company was named “Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality” for the seventh consecutive year in the Human Rights Campaign’s 2021 Corporate Equality Index.
Tapestry owns the footwear company Stuart Weitzman, as well as the brands Coach and Kate Spade.
