What is the Conscious Circle?

The Conscious Circle is an exclusive group of young, influential leaders globally who are working to end cruelty in the fashion industry in their lifetime. The Conscious Circle brings young and young-at-heart change-makers together to support VFW’s mission to prevent cruelty to animals and promote compassionate food choices and policies.

The Group is composed of entrepreneurs, CEOs, business owners, startup founders, creatives, writers, artists, and other up-and-coming social influencers eager to use their networks and skills to change the world.

Members connect with like-minded peers and thought leaders in the movement through a variety of events and interactions. And they have the opportunity to build a cohesive, community-oriented group who share deeply held values.
