Teen Vogue’s editor in chief, Lindsay Peoples Wagner, and Sandrine Charles, a public relations expert, founded the Black in Fashion Council (BIFC) in late June as a way to advocate for and secure the advancement of Black people in fashion.

Today, the Black in Fashion Council announced the first 38 companies that have signed up to participate in the program. The council will help to hold these companies accountable for making internal changes regarding diversity and inclusion.

“Brands have pledged a commitment to work with the Black in Fashion Council for the next three years and work with the Human Rights Campaign to put policies into practice further to demonstrate their commitment to Black employees at all levels,” the BIFC statement reads. 38 major players, including Condé Nast, Gap, and Farfetch have committed to work with the Black in Fashion Council over the next three years. They'll also collaborate with the Human Rights Campaign on implementing policies that show their commitment to Black employees at all levels.

BIFC is also accepting membership applications, priced at $50 for the assistant level, and $100 for senior membership. “By organizing a resilient group of editors, models, stylists, media executives, assistants, freelance creatives, and industry stakeholders, we aim to build a new foundation for inclusivity,” the organization writes. “For this change to occur, non-Black brands, publications, and people of influence have to carefully examine the roles they’ve played in either helping or hurting Black people who work in these spaces.” You can join here.
