Podium Talks - Flourish in Diversity & how to be a more inclusive creative organisation

The first in a series of sessions hosted by Publicis•Poke Podium

Last week, Podium hosted its first 'Podium Talks' event with Flourish in Diversity, a social enterprise whose mission is to support underrepresented young people access and prosper within the fashion sector. They are working to diversify decision-making roles and promote innovation, for a cleaner and fairer industry and we at Publicis•Poke had the opportunity to pick their brains on how to be more inclusive as a creative organisation (video clips coming soon!).

Flourish in Diversity are raising funds to host a paid training programme for school leavers from diverse ethnic backgrounds and/or low-income households seeking a career in the fashion industry, focused on sustainable and ethical practice. If you’re interested in donating or hearing more about their mission, please go check out their gofundme page.
