I am looking for help from someone UK based who is engaged in the ethical fashion industry, perhaps in design or manufacture.
I am a professional careers writer and have been commissioned by Babcock Lifeskills to produce a publication with the title “Working in Ethical and Green Careers”. This is one of a series of publications for 13 to 19 year olds that sets out to broaden their knowledge of the range of such jobs and inspire them to investigate further.
The booklet will consist of a number of brief case studies of people (no older than 30) in ethical and green careers and I would like to include a case study of someone involved in ethical fashion.
Is there a member of this Forum (no older than 30) who may be willing to help with one of the case studies? I am keen to have a representative cross-section of society represented in the case studies, so it would be helpful if the person were from an ethnic minority.
What is involved?
1. I would email you a list of the standard questions I would be asking. I would then interview you by phone unless you preferred to respond by email.
2. After the interview I would email my draft for your approval (and your line manager’s approval if appropriate).
3. I would ask you to arrange for a few photographs to be taken in your work environment.
4. You would be asked for written permission for the case study and photos to be used by the publisher (Babcock Lifeskills) for up to five years after the interview.
You would be sent a copy of the finished booklet when it is published.
I hope that you agree that the project is worthwhile. I would love to hear from people.
