In this amazing episode of The EdUp Experience, sponsored by MDT Marketing, we have the honor of speaking with Ruby Veridiano, Paris Ambassador, Remake! Ruby talks to us about the fashion industry - how workers in some countries are exploited, and why sustainable fashion is a necessary piece of education that colleges and universities need to deliver to students. The fashion industry includes materials/textiles, human resources, supply chain management, product marketing, sales, and general business - it's an ecosystem. Ruby also discusses being a social justice warrior for Asian-Americans and a voice for women. Ruby has consulted with some of the most well-known universities in the world.
