Social Equity Workshops (SEW) create important dicsussion which establish equity, diversity and inclusion within the campus community, through the lens of fashion and design’s relationship with diversity, equity, and inclusion.  The SEW workshops encompass minority affinity groups, minority retreats, minority student mentorship and forums.

To estabish a long -term impact our SEW conversations are grounded in partnerships with the FIT Diversity Collective and a network of fashion and design industry advisors experienced in promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI).
