“I look forward to formalizing an already existing dialogue and partnership around diversity and inclusion with Mary Dillon and the Ulta Beauty team,” Ross said in a press release, according to Essence’s Girls United platform. “This work requires commitment and accountability from Ulta Beauty to ensure measurable goals are achieved. I am hopeful and optimistic our work together will create foundational change.”
Ross’ collaboration with Ulta is another example of how the brand continues to not only preach about diversity but put in measures to ensure inclusion and representation in their stores. in addition to appointing Ross an advisor, the company committed $25M to encourage diversity as well as devoting $20M in advertising commitments for marginalized entrepreneurs.
