CFDA Expands Diversity Efforts With Creation of a Black Advisory Board

Chaired by designer Tracy Reese.

Following the promotion of CaSandra Diggs to CFDA president, the organization has announced two new moves expanding its efforts to foster diversity and create opportunities for Black talent in the fashion industry.

Firstly, the CFDA has launched a Black advisory board, led by Diggs, to lead all CFDA initiatives surrounding inclusivity, diversity and equality. Chaired by designer Tracy Reese, the board is spearheaded by members including Harper’s Bazaar Editor-in-Chief Samira Nasr, Netflix Chief Marketing Officer Bozoma Saint John and former Burberry Design Director Martin Cooper.

Diggs also hired Bonnie Morrison, founder of Morrison Strategy Partners, to lead the execution of CFDA’s equity program initiatives including its recently formed talent placement program for Black creatives. “We are bringing together an impressive group of esteemed industry colleagues to collectively help us build a framework for increased diversity, equity and inclusion in fashion,” Diggs said in a statement. CEO Stephen Kolb added that the newly announced changes “allow [the CFDA] to bring important perspectives to the fashion industry.”
