What Black Lives Matter means for beauty with Dr. Ateh Jewel

Today, I’m joined by an award winning beauty journalist, producer, brand founder and diversity advocate, Dr. Ateh Jewel. For as long as I can remember, Ateh has been at the forefront of conversations within the beauty industry about how we all need to work towards creating more of a diverse landscape. 

When the world became aware of the story of George Floyd in May 2020, a widespread conversation ignited about the importance of the Black Lives Matter movement. Within the beauty industry, Ateh was encouraging this discussion to create a wider awareness and ignite positive change. So, today, she joins me to share her experiences of being a black woman and mother in society today, and how the beauty industry can work together to create a better future.
