The Company

The Fifteen Percent Pledge is a racial equity and economic justice organization addressing the inequities that exist throughout the American consumer economy and working towards a more equitable economic future.

The organization was founded in 2020 by entrepreneur and fashion pioneer Aurora James and since its launch major companies including Macy’s Inc., Bloomingdales, Sephora, West Elm and Rent the Runway have committed to the Pledge, dedicating 15% of their shelf space to Black-owned brands; in addition to other internal efforts to support diversity, equity and inclusion across their companies. Indigo, Canada’s largest bookstore, also committed to the Pledge, becoming the first Canadian company to do so. InStyle US and Vogue US have committed to filling 15% of their space to Black voices.
