INWED Celebration & Clothing Swap
Who’s ready for summer?! Celebrate International Women in Engineering Day (INWED) with us over drinks, champagne and cupcakes. We’re excited to host a clothing swap with Threading Change, a youth lead organization that envisions fashion as ethical and circular, with a special short presentation by Sophia Yang.
No clothes to bring? No problem! Come anyway to enjoy some snacks, learn about the fashion industry and the latest sustainable textiles, and celebrate INWED.

4:45PM – 5:00PM Registration + Clothing Drop Off
5:00PM – 5:30PM Presentation by Threading Change
5:30PM – 6:30PM Clothing Swap + Networking
Where: RAM – Vancouver Office
409 Granville Street, Suite 700

Please be mindful to only bring items in good, wearable condition. No holes, stains or damage. Maximum 10 items per person. We accept clothing of any gender and any season from your closet.
Q: How does it work?
A: Bring your clean clothes to the event. At check-in, volunteers will be reviewing conditions of the clothes. We will then give you a ticket which indicates the number of items you may take home at the end of the swap. If you didn’t find any items you like, you can reuse your ticket at future Threading Change events.
Q: What type of clothing will be there?
A: This will depend on what people bring.
Q: What happens to the leftover clothes?
A: All the clothes are donated to WISH drop in center society.
