Sephora Closes On June 5th For Diversity Training


Follow: @anthromisticnews 💕 On June 5th 2019, popular beauty chain @Sephora will close over 400 United States based stores and corporate offices for diversity training- educating about 16,000 employees. The action is a response to an incident occurring a month earlier. While shopping 🛍 for @BadGalRiRi ‘s #FentyBeauty products in Calabasas, California, Grammy nominated R&B singer @SZA was racially profiled. SZA [Real Name: Solána Imani Rowe] tweeted her shock when “Sandy Sephora”-a staff member of the beauty store, called security on the #TopDogEntertainment songstress for allegedly stealing. The following day #Sephora tweeted: “@SZA You are a part of the Sephora family, and we are committed to ensuring every member of our community feels welcome and included at our stores.” I’m an interview last year with Refinery29 the singer revealed she once worked for Sephora’s skincare department. Offering a final statement, Sephora takes to social network with this message:

“On the morning of 6/5, every Sephora store, distribution center, and corporate office in the US will close to host inclusion workshops for our employees. These values have always been at the heart of Sephora, and we’re excited to welcome everyone when we reopen.”

Sephora also introduced their “We Belong to Something Beautiful” diversity loving campaign. It appears Sephora is taking a play from #Starbucks handbook who also faced hot water in 2018 for racial discrimination- after calling the police on two #BlackMales as they waited on their friend before ordering.
