Replay: Video / Audio


Going deeper into the Where do we go from here? discussion from last month, Chris Kidd, the owner of StyleCareers.com, will moderate a panel discussion on the impact of the pandemic on the more EXPERIENCED (older) fashion industry professionals.

Topics will include:

  • In the wake of COVID-19, how has the availability of mid-senior/upper-level positions been impacted?
  • What are the near- and long-term prospects for mid-senior/upper-level opportunities in the fashion industry?
  • Has the pandemic changed, permanently, the availability of upper-level positions?
  • Will seasoned fashion industry professionals have a harder time getting back in the workforce post COVID?
  • Is age OR the salaries associated with experienced professionals the bigger issue for seasoned fashion industry professionals in hiring?
  • What are some strategies to help overcome age-related biases?

Additionally, select topics from the audience will be discussed during the Q&A portion of the webinar; time permitting.
