Description

WE HAVE REACHED MAXIMUM CAPACITY - PLEASE JOIN THE WAITLIST AND WE WILL TRY TO FIND YOU A SPACE

Ashoka is bringing the Fabric of Change initiative to Toronto, in partnership with Fashion Takes Action and C&A Foundation. On the Sunday before WEAR, please join us for a day of community-building, exploring new avenues for collaboration, and developing social finance tools for growing your organization.

Fabric of Change is helping drive change in the apparel and fashion value chain, to reshape the industry as a force for good, building on the innovative work of Ashoka Fellows and other leading social entrepreneurs.

Registration for our Sunday program is first come, first served. The afternoon workshop at the Center for Social Innovation is intended for attendees of WEAR, brand representatives, and social entrepreneurs in the apparel/fashion sector. (We reserve the right to cancel the reservation of anyone we feel would not be an appropriate attendee.) A networking cocktail/dinner reception will follow at nearby restaurant R&D -- LIMITED SPACE AVAILABLE. Complimentary food will be included in both sessions; feel free to register for both.

Please reach out to fabricofchange@ashoka.org with any questions.
