Globalization dramatically changed the way business is conducted in the apparel manufacturing industry. In many cases, these changes came with little regard to social responsibility in the design, production and sourcing of products. Social Responsibility in the Global Apparel Industry combines a broad analysis of apparel manufacturing with a discussion of how social responsibility can influence corporate strategy and decisions made throughout the global supply chain. Students learn how leading apparel and footwear manufacturers attempt to solve complex problems at all stages of the apparel manufacturing process, including child labor, harassment and abuse, discrimination, excessive hours of work, low wages and poor factory health and safety. Drawing on their experience in industry and research, the authors provide the tools to change the apparel industry from the inside out by preparing the next generation and current industry professionals with the awareness, knowledge and passion to make it more socially responsible.
