BBR Virtual Summit Announces Additional Partners Committed to Driving Change in Beauty and Entertainment

NEW YORK , February 24 /Businesswire/ - The upcoming BBR Virtual Summit, hosted by Black Beauty Roster (BBR) and powered by Bonnti, has announced 11 additional partners to their lineup of organizations and companies driving change for people of color. This first-of-its-kind digital summit will bring together beauty pros and Hollywood insiders to learn, discuss, and advocate for a much-needed shift in representation in the entertainment and beauty industries. BBR is proud to welcome its new partners, alongside existing sponsors, L’Oréal Paris and SHOWTIME, who represent a cross-section of stakeholders needed to increase representation in Hollywood.

“The BBR Virtual Summit is, at its core, about uplifting people of color in beauty and entertainment and driving large-scale change. We are so excited to partner with organizations that continue to progress the work we are doing through initiatives like TRESemmé’s Future Stylist Fund and Color of Change’s #ChangeHollywood Diversity initiative,” said Maude Okrah, co-founder of Black Beauty Roster and Bonnti.

In September 2020, TRESemmé launched the inaugural TRESemmé Future Stylists Fund, an annual $100,000 scholarship program created to help Black women interested in becoming licensed hair professionals offset the cost of tuition for an accredited cosmetology school of their choosing.

“Black women are underrepresented in women’s initiatives and receive fewer tools, resources, and support to advance their professional ambitions. There is more to be done, but the Future Stylists Fund is one way that TRESemmé can provide a long-term solution that specifically supports Black women,” said Esi Eggleston Bracey, EVP and COO, Beauty and Personal Care at Unilever NA.

The BBR Virtual Summit will take place on Sunday, February 28 from 12pm EST to 8pm EST. In addition to showstoppers like Gabrielle Union, Kim Kimble, and L’Oréal Paris US Makeup Artist and Creative Director, Sir John, BBR is excited to announce additional guest speakers including actress Monique Coleman, journalist Jemele Hill, celebrity natural hairstylist Felicia Leatherwood, and a special guest appearance from model Tyra Banks. Attendees can look forward to engaging and informative panels and breakout sessions, as well as networking opportunities and a virtual happy hour sponsored by Indoggo Gin by Snoop Dogg.
