As protests against police brutality and anti-Black racism continue around the world, you can feel the effects within the beauty community. Consumers are starting to demand that companies reflect their commitment to racial inclusion through their staffing, product offerings, and overall branding. Uoma Beauty’s Sharon Chuter has been leading the way with the #PullUpOrShutUp challenge, which pushes brands to reveal the percentage of Black employees they have in leadership roles. The point is to hold these companies accountable and to encourage them to actually do better, rather than making hollow statements about solidarity on social media. In response, several brands have shared these demographics and, in many cases, initiatives to fix the areas where they fall short. On June 9, L’Oréal Paris U.K. announced that it will be adding model Munroe Bergdorf to its newly-created Diversity and Inclusion Advisory Board, as well as donating to two organizations that support members of the LGBTQ+ community in the United Kingdom.Public statements released by both parties shared that L’Oréal Paris’s current president, Delphine Viguier, spoke with Bergdorf this week to discuss inclusivity within the company. This comes three years after the brand ended the partnership it had with Bergdorf, the first trans model featured in a campaign for L’Oréal Paris U.K., after she spoke up against systemic racism. Though Bergdorf does not intend to forget about what happened in the past, she wants to use it and her platform to move forward and promote growth and change. In her statement, Bergdorf wrote, “I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to practise what I preach and take up that seat at the table to be the representation that we deserve as a community.” She also shared that L’Oréal Paris will be donating to both the UK Black Pride (which runs Europe’s Pride celebration and other events for the Black queer community,) and Mermaids Gender, which offers support to transgender and gender non-comforming youth. Each organization will receive over €25,000. At the moment, L’Oréal Paris has not shared who else will be joining this board, but hopefully, there will be some positive change on its end to not only prevent situations like what happened to Bergdorf, but to also actually inclusion within the beauty industry, especially for the Black, trans, and queer communities.
