Whimsy + Row is a small team of 3 full-time employees, and 7 part-time freelancers committed to incorporating anti-racism efforts into our company structure. In our on-going effort, we appreciate your thoughts and ideas and hope you will continue to make suggestions and engage with us. However, know that in the end, company wide cultural competence is our responsibility and it is our duty to figure out how to restructure from the inside out.
We want to share what the W+R team has been discussing in our efforts be be an actively anti-racist brand; Not to give ourselves a sticker, or a pat on the back, but because you’ve been rightfully asking what tangible things Whimsy + Row will do beyond an instagram post or a neatly packed PR statement.
— We will diversify, reflecting our community as we hire within our team, our models, the influencers we work with.
— We will allocate 15% of our wholesale shelf space to black-owned companies and have taken the @15percentpledge founded by @aurorajames.
— We will continue to use our platform to amplify social justice causes. We will expand our blog, hosting conversations about sustainable fashion alongside the causes and issues aligned with W+R’s ethos — amplifying the perspectives of black women and POC, working with writers who offer ranging perspectives.
