A new organization has been set up to help promote diversity and advance the careers of black individuals working in the fashion and beauty industries. The Black In Fashion Council – launched by the editors of Teen Vogue, Lindsay Peoples Wagner, and Sandrine Charles – will work to end systemic racism and discrimination in the fashion industry. 

The organization has over 400 publishers, stylists, models, and fashion executives registered and has more than 35 board members appointed from all sectors of the fashion industry, including retail outlets, fashion houses, the modeling industry, and fashion magazines. The Black In Fashion Council will work in a variety of different ways to help hold brands responsible for their lack of diversity and to help them change.

One way the organization can operate is through a digital repository of black talent that companies can access to diversify their workforce. The Council will also host frequent meetings and activities to support its black leaders. It will also require organizations to commit to working with the Council for the next three years and to engage in the 'Quality Index Ranking,' which will measure its diversity – and then have the ability to collaborate with the Council on how to enhance its performance. "The Black in Fashion Council was created to serve and protect the advancement of black individuals in the fashion and beauty industries," said the group on Instagram. "As a community, we imagine a future in which black women in fashion and beauty will be open and truthful, assured equal rights, and respected for our voices. While we are working towards our end, we urge people to be open and honest.
