• 2023 National Black Footwear Forum

    Pensole Lewis College of Business and Design, Detroit
    September 14–17, 2023

    FDRA and Pensole Lewis College of Business & Design are hosting our 4th National Black 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.


    New this year: the Forum will kick off with a DEI Summit, held on September 14, 2023, that will bring together CEOs and executives across the industry to focus on increasing diversity and equity within the footwear industry.


    Agenda, speakers, and registration will be launched soon!
