Pro Bono Perspectives S2E21: Ngozi Okaro, Custom Collaborative

Fashioning a Pathway to Success and Equity

SOURCE: Common Impact


Custom Collaborative Executive Director Ngozi Okaro joins Pro Bono Perspectives host and Common Impact CEO Danielle Holly to discuss nonprofit management during times of crisis.

Earlier this year when COVID-19 first hit New York, Custom Collaborative, a workforce development nonprofit that prepares women from immigrant and low-income communities for careers in fashion, partnered with Common Impact and S&P Global for a skills-based volunteering project. Ngozi tells the story of this collaboration, how she made the time and space to focus on capacity-building, and how Custom Collaborative successfully pivoted its fashion industry trainings and career readiness programs to virtual when the pandemic began.
