Ulta to Boost Anti-Bias Training, Sell More Black-Owned Brands

  • The retailer’s plan includes $2 million for diversity programs
  • Sets a target of 5% for Black-owned products in stores

Ulta Beauty Inc., the country’s biggest cosmetics retailer, plans to increase spending on inclusion and antidiscrimination training programs and will boost the number of products for sale by Black-owned businesses as the industry tries to address racial inequality.

Included in the commitment is $2 million for staff training this year to “ensure equality in guest experiences.” In 2019, several Ulta employees spoke out about racial profiling of customers in the company’s stores.
