Today, we are taking the next step in shifting Beautycounter into a new paradigm, by partnering with Paradigm to design and implement a comprehensive, data-driven diversity and inclusion strategy. We are proud to have Paradigm’s interdisciplinary experts leading the way, along with our internal Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Advisory Hub at HQ, to build a stronger, more inclusive Beautycounter.
Our goal has always been to create a movement to protect the health and safety of people by getting safer, high-quality products to everyone. We cannot achieve our goal without making sure that we are doing our part to address the health and safety of a key part of our community: our BIPOC Associates, Consultants, and customers.
While we have grown our community and made progress toward that goal, we know that there is much more to be done. We recognize the road to change is not always smooth; however, we are committed to making a difference, and we are grateful to have Paradigm to guide us along the way. We strive to cultivate a community in which Associates, Consultants, and customers—regardless of race, gender, or ethnicity—truly feel that they belong.
As a brand with a unique voice and audience, we are not only utilizing our platform to take a stand, but we are learning how Beautycounter as an organization—and we as individuals—can become active allies to the BIPOC community in all that we do. We want to make sure all voices are heard, and we will ensure that there will be opportunities to engage in this work. Our Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Advisory Hub will work with Paradigm to help us facilitate a streamlined and efficient way for everyone to get involved.
Our partnership with Paradigm marks a first step on what we know is an incredibly important journey. We are committed to sharing news and developments with you along the way. Watch this space for more information about the work we will be doing.
