PVH has launched a new partnership with the Gabelli School of Business at Fordham University, to establish a leading academic hub for the study of corporate responsibility (CR) and sustainability. PVH, based in the US, is a leading apparel company and owner of iconic brands, including Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, Van Heusen, Speedo, and IZOD.

The partnership will work to develop students into the conscientious business leaders of tomorrow. It is designed to advance relationships between industry and academia to enhance sustainability curriculum and convene global thought leaders. A range of programming and opportunities will be made available, including a quarterly lecture series, a number of research programs for both faculty and students, and new academic offerings for undergraduate and graduate students, according to PVH.

Leveraging the synergies between PVH’s Forward Fashion CR strategy and Gabelli School’s recognition as a worldwide leader in socially conscious business education, the partnership will build on the shared belief of businesses’ responsibility to create a sustainable and responsible future. PVH and Fordham University are passionate about working together to foster an innovative and entrepreneurial spirit in the next generation of leaders to help drive fashion forward – for good.

PVH chairman and CEO Manny Chirico graduated from the Gabelli School of Business and currently sits on the board of trustees of the University. In 2018, Manny received an honorary doctorate of humane letters from the university.

“This partnership demonstrates PVH and Fordham’s shared commitment to educate the future by harnessing the power of corporate responsibility for both financial successes and societal impact,” Chirico said.

“Our partnership with PVH reflects an innovative model for the Gabelli School – one that takes a holistic, multi-stakeholder approach toward creating impact. The partnership will prove that two organisations with very similar values, but in very different industries, can meaningfully connect to support social and environmental good at a time when we need it most,” said Donna Rapaccioli, dean of the Gabelli School of Business said.
