Textile Exchange issues invite to industry experts

London – Applications are now open to join Textile Exchange’s 2025 governance board, and the non-profit is putting out the call to members of the textiles industry.

“We are looking for well-rounded individuals whose diverse skills and experiences can help us ensure long-term organizational stability and drive transformative change,” the organization announced. “Ideally, candidates will have a deep understanding of the fashion, textiles and apparel industry, along with knowledge from outside our specific field.”

Familiarity with standards and certification, a strong connection to Textile Exchange, and “a passion for our mission and work are essential,” it added.

Textile Exchange is particularly looking for individuals with experience in the following areas:

  • Recycling and circularity: Candidates who understand the changing landscape of textile recycling and can provide thought leadership in this area.
  • Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI): Candidates who can help promote inclusive and equitable practices within the organization and the industry.

The organization is also hoping to enhance its geographical representation and is particularly interested in candidates from Europe and Mainland China.

“Ideal candidates will have prior governance and board experience, with a strategic mindset and a proven track record at a senior level, the organization explained. “We value individuals who can frame sector-wide issues, shape the agenda, and keep us focused on our mission.”

Expressions of interest must be submitted by July 31, and an election will be held in September.

Two seats are open for a three-year term starting on January 1, 2025. Board members are eligible to serve up to three terms, totaling nine years. The current governance board will vote to elect new board members and re-elect current board members at the end of their terms.
