To focus on how she can strive for more inclusivity and representation in the fashion industry, Victoria Beckham is taking a “step back.” 

The 46-year-old designer took to Instagram a statement detailing how the fashion industry, in terms of supporting the Black Lives Matter movement, can do better.

I’ve taken a step back this week to focus on the tragic events that have been highlighted recently. Watching things unfold and learning more about the Black Lives Matter movement, I’ve been truly sickened by how deeply ingrained racism is in our society. It’s clear that it’s each of our responsibilities to speak out and I want to use my platform for education, conversation and change. The fashion industry has a huge role to play, and for me, it starts with representation, both within my business and who we work with externally. I’ve always aimed for inclusivity, but we all need to look inwards and be better. At Victoria Beckham, we’ve set up an internal working group as a first step and will provide additional support to ensure that we are listening to each other, discussing the issues, identifying unconscious bias in ourselves and ensuring our short and long-term actions reflect all our learnings. Whilst things won’t change or be solved in a day, we clearly can’t wait another day to start and I am absolutely committed to being better and doing more, both personally and professionally. I hope you all share my sentiment and are doing the same with your friends, family, brands and businesses so that we all play our part in this vital issue. x vb #blacklivesmatter

She continued that they at Victoria Beckham, have always strived to be inclusive, but they need to be better and to look inwards, and they’ve set up an internal working group to look at everything from their talent and teams to their casting, partners, and suppliers as a first step. The team, she explained, as their short and long-term actions are executed, will hold her business “accountable and ensure.”

Beckham stated that her eponymous women’s wear line, “to ensure that they are listening to each other, really discussing the identifying unconscious bias and issues in themselves and the wider business,” additional support and training for the team will also be provided.

Continuing her statement, Beckham said that it’s each of their responsibilities to use their platforms for change, conversation and education and to speak out, adding that things sure won’t be changed or solved in a single day, but clearly, to start doing more, they can’t wait another day.

Accompanied by a picture of her statement, in her Instragram caption, the former pop-star went on outlining what changes can be implemented by the fashion industry to make more of a difference in supporting the Black Lives Matter movement as well as other social justice issues.
