Inclusive Beauty with BuzzFeed
November 6, 2017 at 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
This thought-provoking panel will discuss beauty standards and how the fashion, beauty, and media industries address diversity and inclusion. What is the impact of gender, race, body size, ability, culture, age, etc.? What role can FIT students play in creating more inclusive industries? We have invited some influencers involved in various aspects of media and beauty to join our panel; two of them—Augusta Falletta and Jillian Mercado—are even FIT alumni. Join us as they share their stories, insights, and advice with us.
Essence Gant, beauty editor, BuzzFeed
Jillian Mercado, model, artist, and activist
Jacob Tobia, writer, producer, performer, and influencer
Augusta Falletta, supervising producer, BuzzFeed’s Top Knot
Light refreshments will be served.
This event is sponsored by the Office of the Vice President for Enrollment Management and Student Success.
