“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”.
In February 2019, the Prada Group established the “Diversity and Inclusion Advisory Council”, co-chaired by prominent personalities like artist and activist Theaster Gates and award-winning writer, director and producer, Ava DuVernay. Over time, the Council will include the voices of academic and cultural experts from high-level international institutions.
The Council has as primary objective 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 in the fashion industry.
