    FDRA and Pensole Lewis College of Business & Design are hosting our third national Black Footwear Forum (formerly African American Footwear Forum) that will bring together footwear execs and professionals, policymakers, and supporters to collaborate, share stories and ideas, and explore how to establish industry goals in the development of Black talent at all levels in the industry.


    The event features keynotes and panels exploring impact on consumer culture, how diversity drives innovation, and how creativity drives global competitiveness. The forum also provides connections for black footwear professional brands to share concerns and solutions to help shape the conversation while bridging the gaps across the industry.
