WHAT WE DO
Founded in 2013, We Speak was the first domino in the movement for a truly equitable fashion world. We Speak is non-traditional model management that gives a voice to models who deserve to be celebrated, and a voice to the public who crave—and continue to drive—seismic industry shifts. We do this by putting models first and holding open conversations with brands around authentic representation.
With a steadily growing nationwide presence within the U.S., we aim to shift the center of our industry. We work with those who seek to move margins, celebrate all bodies, and undo tokenism by lifting the voices of marginalized groups. A new industry top is forming. One that promises authentic diversity, combats scarcity and all the “isms,” and one that has brands passionate about action.
WHAT IS A NON-TRADITIONAL APPROACH?
Supporting those that need to be seen
Our models show up as their true selves with the willingness to represent that self in front of the camera. They deserve to be supported in environments working to undo tokenism.
Models Trust Certified
One of few approved industry leaders in fair representation, We Speak partners with Models Trust to help implement safer workplace practices.
Empowerment and improvement through education
From client deal memos, to monthly email blasts, to website resources, to model info sessions, we empower the people we work with by sharing information curated by our unique perspective.
A founding We Speak value is to listen. By keeping an open mind and an open ear with our models, brands, and the wider public, we are at the forefront of industry-wide improvements.
Taking a firm stance
Fear and scarcity often fuels our industry. By thriving outside of the scarcity model and being fearless and firm in our values, We Speak fosters abundance.
