Julee Wilson

DAWN E. NORVELL

SENIOR BUYER AT CONSUMABLES, WALMART

“I give a voice to people who are marginalized, those who are typically on the periphery or not even considered in our industry. My career allows me to broaden the perspective of what beauty is.”

ANGELA SIMPSON

EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF MARKETING, NARS COSMETICS U.S.

“You can read research or reports and know all the demographics and the statistics, but there’s something about having a Black woman at the table who knows the nuances of that experience—[we know] the things you can’t get in a report.”

TIFFANI CARTER- THOMPSON

VICE-PRESIDENT OF INTEGRATED MARKETING, SHISEIDO U.S.

“I truly believe that the beauty industry can change people’s lives through the work that we do and how we bring happiness and joy and positivity to women’s lives every single day from the moment when they wake up.”

ANNE MARIE NELSON-BOGLE

DEPUTY GENERAL MANAGER, L’ORÉAL PARIS U.S.

“I want to pave the way for others to come behind me. We need to have representation at the top, with people sitting in positions like mine. The buck doesn’t stop here. There’s still a lot of work to do.”

ESI EGGLESTON BRACEY
