About Us

Sovereignty Company is a sustainable circular social enterprise and nonprofit. We empower fashion entrepreneurs of color to collectively solve climate change and inclusion challenges. We are redefining and disrupting neo luxe fashion, equitable wealth creation, and creative workforce economy through our nonprofit, Fashion CEOs Accelerator, sustainable fashion brand, SO.TY, and impact fund.

Mission

Our mission is to bridge the gap between entrepreneurs of colors, leaders, innovators, companies, policymakers, and everyday people to create climate-neutral fashion solutions.

Vision

By 2050 our vision is to realize a diverse, inclusive, equitable, prosperous, and circular fashion society for BIPOC communities.

We Are Aligned With The UN SDGs

4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, 12, and 13 and the Paris Agreement on climate change, and the Fashion Industry Charter for Climate Action, sponsored by the United Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

Our Values:

  • Equitable Wealth = everyone deserves to feel wealthy (social, emotional, financial, mental, spiritual) and worthy in a circular economy.
  • Transparency = our goal is not to be perfect, but honest, genuine and true in getting our stakeholders abreast of progress and performance.
  • Climate Action = we choose not to sit and observe globe warming, but instead be the backbone, engine, and heart to reverse negative environmental impact by 2050 through regenerative fashion. We believe in limitless stewardship of our planet through climate action.
  • Co creation = we believe in the magic of using our individual genius and entrepreneurial spirit to co create a circular neo fashion society through creative problem solving and innovative solutions.
  • Community = the world and humanity is better when we unite as a whole body to share our superpowers, natural resources, generosity and voices as a force for good. We serve our ancestors, current and future generations. Future fashion entrepreneurs are our heart center.
