My name is Ola Stepnik and I recently graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in International Trade and Marketing for the Fashion Industries from Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) in New York City.
The reason why I decided to work in the Fashion Industry was my Economics Bachelor's thesis that I had written about: "Economical and Ethical aspects of sweatshops in Bangladesh", which had sparked my passion for the topics of ethical manufacturing and transparent supply chains. During my first semester at FIT I become a member and shortly after a president of Corporate Social Responsibility student club, where I focused on connecting students with industry professionals and learning about opportunities and developments in the sustainable business and production. I strive to work in an environment where can continue to grow as an ethical trade professional, learn and contribute to a positive change.
As for the skills required I have theoretical and practical knowledge of ethical supply chain management. At variety of courses such as International Business Strategies and Fashion Law, International Business Transactions, Import/Export Regulations, Global Sourcing, International Finance, International Logistics, and International Corporate Responsibility I obtained comprehensive theoretical knowledge about supply chain management, while personal passion for ethics, social responsibility and transparency have driven me to always focus on those aspects in my final presentations, dissertations and essays. Therefore I am familiar and I do understand ethical audit programs, compliance certifications and international standards and systems and I strive to expand my knowledge on a daily basis.
