According to Retail Dive, Sephora will close its stores, distribution centers, and corporate offices the morning of June 5 to hold an inclusion training workshop for its more than 16,000 US employees. The company said it wants to “begin a dialogue” on the importance of diversity and inclusion to the organization, and is planning future training sessions.
The company released the following statement as part of its new diversity and inclusion marketing initiative: “Sephora believes in championing all beauty, living with courage, and standing fearlessly together to celebrate our differences. We will never stop building a community where diversity is expected, self-expression is honored, all are welcomed, and you are included.”
