Thank you for joining us at our recent panel on Race and Gender in the Sneaker Industry: Design, Law and the Metaverse. A huge thank you to our amazing panelists: Alicia Pinckney (Nike Jordan brand); Cheresse Thornhill-Goldson (adidas S.E.E.D.); Olivera Medenica (Dunnington Bartholow & Miller LLP); and Daniel Bellizio (Bellizio + Igel PLLC). Our designers and fashion law experts shared several gems yesterday—covering key courses and skills for a successful career in design, IP protection and privacy in the metaverse, communication between designers and attorneys early in the creative process, and the importance of building a diverse talent pipeline. Alicia Pinckney also discussed the Black Talent in Design and Fashion Fund, more details available here.
We look forward to seeing you in April for our next virtual event on BioFashion, Sustainability and Policy.
