“Prada is committed to cultivating, recruiting and retaining diverse talent to contribute to all departments of the Company. In addition to amplifying voices of color within the industry, we will help ensure that the fashion world is reflective of the world in which we live”.
The Prada Group established the “Diversity and Inclusion Advisory Council”, a group of brilliant minds in art, fashion, institutions, academia and activism, co-chaired by artist and activist Theaster Gates and award-winning writer, director and producer, Ava DuVernay. Other Council members include: Fashion Institute of Technology President, Joyce F. Brown, Humanitarian and Chief of Strategic Partnerships at The United Nations Population Fund Mariarosa Cutillo and Sarah Lewis, Associate Professor of History of Art and Architecture and African and African American Studies at Harvard University.
The Council’s objective is to elevate voices of color within the Company and the fashion industry at-large, advising the Group as it invests in diverse talent development and expands opportunities for students throughout the fashion industry.
