Dubbed 'Let’s Talk Beauty: ELC x NAASC', the dynamic program includes panel discussions and networking opportunities for Spelman alumnae with ELC leaders. 

In particular, alumnae will have the chance to learn how to transition into the beauty business, discover career opportunities, and to discuss navigating the beauty industry as a woman of color.

"I am really excited about the opportunity to partner with The Estée Lauder Companies; women of color have had an interesting history with the beauty industry, and this is a chance to shift the future of that narrative,” said Stacey Frazier, president of the New York Chapter of the National Alumnae Association of Spelman College (NY-NAASC). 

“I look forward to the future events that we are planning to connect Spelman Alumnae to ELC.”

The 'Let’s Talk Beauty' program officially launched in May with its first virtual event, 'MAC Voices: Redefining Professionalism' for Spelman alumnae. The event included an ELC business overview, Let’s Talk Beauty Program highlights, a MAC panelists discussion on advancing professionalism, and a MAC makeup artistry session.

The launch of Let’s Talk Beauty reaffirms ELC’s commitment to Racial Equity, a pledge the company made in June 2020. 

“As a proud alumna of Spelman College, which is annually ranked as the top HBCU in the U.S., the Let’s Talk Beauty program is especially meaningful to me because it will help pave the way for more Black women to define careers in the beauty space,” said Monique Davis, VP of local & cultural innovation at ELC.
