Mission Statement

FIT Executive Women in Fashion is an educational and networking resource for female executives in retailing, fashion and related industries. It is our belief that women executives have a unique opportunity to advance their careers through shared educational and interactive experiences.

The three pillars of the FIT Executive Women in Fashion initiative are:

1. To provide senior women executives in fashion and retailing with a resource for high-level career development and networking opportunities.

2. To provide emerging mid-level executives with essential training and development in leadership skills, functional knowledge, strategic planning and the critical thinking abilities necessary for success.

3. To provide FIT undergraduate students with valuable support in understanding the managerial techniques and interpersonal skills necessary to become a successful executive in fashion and retailing.

FIT Executive Women in Fashion seeks to address the above goals through a combined agenda of educational programs, networking events and coaching and mentoring for women executives at all levels of the industry as well as FIT undergraduates.
