Let's Talk Transparency
Who wants to know what’s in their food, their clothes, their buildings? This Pecha Kucha style event gathers diverse voices in industries that address material transparency in their work. From fashion, to food, to buildings, we will hear from industry leaders about their supply chain processes, to end products and how they implement material transparency into everyday practices.
