Patta founder Edson was recently invited to the Nike European, Middle Eastern & African HQ to speak to Nike’s Black Employee Network & friends. The mission of BEN is to unleash the full potential of Nike by fuelling diversity, inclusion & celebrating black culture. The Nike EMEA HQ is striving, just like the Beaverton Headquarters, to hold these talks regularly with inspiring external speakers. 

Edson spoke about Patta, the journey of building a company and Europe’s sneaker culture. The talk was attended by Nike employees from who also strive for an inclusive workspace. As a black-owned company, Patta is happy to see these initiatives pop up and are always down to support and more than excited to see what comes out. 

Team Patta salutes Nike for this initiative.
