Thia Breen and Laurie Dowley (the best hostesses in beauty) invited fellow CEW board members and their friends to our first Annual Beauty with Benefits Shopping Party to, as Laurie said, “Buy, buy, buy!!!!!!”

This fabulous and generous group gathered at CEW's offices to buy products that their companies--and other leading names in beauty--donated to benefit Cancer and Careers. What a turnout. "Now that is what I call sisterhood!” Laurie commented.

In case you forgot, the QVC and CEW presents Beauty with Benefits broadcast supports CEWF’s Cancer and Careers program, the number one resource for working people with cancer. The event, now in its fourth year, has raised over $3 million for the organization to-date.

One to Watch: Unilever’s Tamara Rogers
Tamara at CEW’s Newsmaker Forum: "Unilever’s Beauty Power Play" event on March 29
Tamara Rogers is EVP, Personal Care, USA, Unilever. A new face in beauty, we predict Tamara will be a major force in the industry.

Born in Africa, raised in the UK, she now lives in Manhattan on the Upper West Side. She’s married with two boys, Cecily and Gabriel.

At Unilever for 20 years, she was behind the company’s dry spray revolution, as SVP Global Deodorants. She replaced Gina Boswell, who was promoted and moved to the UK.

Tamara now leads Unilever’s multi-billion dollar U.S. Personal Care portfolio. Hair, Skin Cleansing, Skin Care and Deodorant are her domain.

Her track record of growing businesses around the world includes significant time spent in Europe, and substantial experience in Asia and Africa.

She’s also an advocate for the development of young leadership. Tamara is one to watch.
