Among them were two formidable forces in the hair and beauty industry.

Angela has worked for more than 25 years in the beauty industry across brands such as Johnson & Johnson and Soft-Sheen Carson. In her current role, she is responsible for shaping L’Oréal USA’s diversity efforts and earned recognition as a power player and one of the most influential women in business.

Charlene parlayed her success as the Global Marketing Director for Strength of Nature Global into a marketing and media empire, making her former employer first client.

“I think it is important to highlight women of color so brown girls can see a reflection of themselves achieving,” said Charlene regarding her honor.
