Between the Covid-19 pandemic and the national conversations around racial inequality, 2020 has brought seismic shifts to the beauty and wellness industries. Customers are increasingly aware if brands’ corporate cultures match their marketing initiatives, and will put dollars behind brands that stand behind inclusivity, transparency and sustainability. These filters extend to employees, product, influencer relationships and partnerships with retailers.

At Glossy’s Future of Beauty and Wellness Forum LIVE, founders, CEOs and marketers from beauty and wellness brands will discuss how they’re responding to the calls to action from shoppers and how they are accelerating change internally and externally.
