Elevating Black Women: The Urgency for Diversity in the Beauty Industry

September 30th, 2021 from 1:00-5:00pm EDT

CEW’s Diversity & Inclusion Forum will feature thought-leaders, visionaries and industry experts who will share best practices and insights to guide our collective journey towards a more inclusive industry.

Results from an industry-wide survey developed by our Task Force*, will provide a first look at how we can all drive action towards representation and advancement of Black women in beauty, and steps we can take together to build a more equitable future for all.

In an effort to make the valuable information that will be shared at this Forum accessible to all, registration for this event is FREE, thanks to the generous support of our Impact Partners.

The program content will provide insights and action plans for the industry as we advance towards a more equitable future for Black women in beauty.
