SPOTLIGHT: BUILDING A BETTER FUTURE WITH #FRAGRANCEFORWARDTFF
On October 20th, TFF kicked off its ambitious and focused DEI initiative with Industry Perspectives on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, a free webinar watched by more than 1,500 attendees, including beauty and fragrance executives, individuals from fragrance brands and media, as well as students and consumers across the country. The event brought to life and articulated #FragranceForwardTFF, the industry-wide inclusivity movement that TFF is galvanizing in order to push forward significant and visible change.
SCENTS AND SENSIBILITY: HOW TO BUILD A CAREER IN THE FRAGRANCE INDUSTRY – SPELMAN COLLEGE
Critical to the Fragrance Foundation’s commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion—and indeed to the entire fragrance industry’s future—is education and outreach. Earlier this month, TFF launched its TFF Career Paths series, Scents of Success: How to Build a Career in the Fragrance Industry, which will involve visits to colleges around the country to showcase professions in the fragrance industry and engage curious young perfume-lovers who may not otherwise have easy access to information or guidance about the field.
