In order to achieve a zero-waste textile industry, businesses will need to reevaluate how they build data, use technology and develop infrastructure that is needed to control and moderate resource waste along the value chain. Developed by the United Nations, The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is a plan of action for people, the planet and prosperity, to deliver greater transparency and accountability. The goals apply a full systems approach and responsibility towards all issues within a production system.

How do fashion businesses implement relevant SDG’s into their existing business models, creating a true level of transparency and traceability with diversity, inclusivity and equity in a digitized fashion supply chain? Our Digital Fashion & Sustainability series of three Masterclasses connects the dots for you. This first Masterclass in the series will support your navigation through the minefield of SDG’s to understand their relevance to your company and the growth potential for sustainable business practices in the future. Learn how to identify potential barriers in implementation and make decisions with regards to people, planet and prosperity while building a new sustainable business model by incorporating circular strategies in a digitized culture. In the second and third part of the series, we turn to real world applications and case studies to help businesses on their journey. 

You may enroll in this masterclass by itself or enroll in all 3 in the series. Book your seat for all 3 masterclasses as a bundle in a single upfront transaction to save $ 150 on the overall cost.

MOTIF Masterclasses are deep-dive instructor-led virtual classes hosted by MOTIF. Focused on a particular topic and taught by a subject-matter expert from across the industry, they can be at minimum a single 3 hour virtual session, or a series of 2-hour sessions scheduled over consecutive days. These sessions typically include presentations, break-out small group discussions or learning activities and a chance to challenge your assumptions and ask questions to practitioners and peers.

Unlike a traditional 1-hour webinar, a Masterclass encourages peer to peer interactions and is a deep-dive session. Whereas both the MOTIF 2-hour Learning Series and MOTIF Masterclasses are highly interactive, the latter are a deeper drill-down on a particular topic. We encourage all participants to prepare by reading the assigned pre-reading, ask questions in the session community forum and come prepared to engage in a live discussion. A digital Certificate of Completion will be awarded for active and full participation to the Masterclass.

This session is open to any fashion industry professional. Some topics may be more advanced than others but there are no prerequisites to attend.

This class is geared for senior level executives in small, mid-size and major brands or vendors who have management and/or strategic responsibility for their company. This is also great for young company leaders building new entreprises.

The ticket gives you access to the full Masterclass and all of its learning material which includes live interaction sessions with audience participation, small group break-out discussions, pre-reading material and resources, and access to the event community for discussion before and after. Everyone who completes the Masterclass, will receive a digital Certificate of Completion.

Tickets are non-refundable, and non-transferable to another MOTIF event or to another person.
