Facets of Beauty is a non-profiit organization focused on giving young women of color exposure to many facets of the beauty and fashion industries through education and career opportunities.
A research study entitled "Women of Color in Corporate Management: Opportunities and Barriers" states, "personal resilience, mentors, and a knack for creating opportunity are among the tools used by women-of-color executives to break down the 'concrete ceiling.' Senior-level women-of-color describe exclusionary and risk-averse organizational cultures as key barriers to career advancement. The women interviewed report that cultures where leaders take risks by mentoring women of color will greatly improve their opportunities to advance.
As young women of color navigate educational choices and career planning in highschool, our mission is to provide exposure to the many facets of the beauty and fashion industries. Facets of Beauty will give them access to diverse career mentorship and tools for success.
"...women of color are scarce in corporate America. Women of color make up just 16.5% of people who work for S&P 500 companies. But they become even rarer the further up the ladder you go. They represent less than 10% of managers and a measly 3.9% of executives."
