CEW Honors Beauty’s Emerging Leaders

Recognition is a core pillar of CEW’s mission, and as the number of women in beauty has increased exponentially, Carlotta Jacobson, the organization’s president, realized there was a gap in the organization’s programming.
While the CEW Achiever Awards, honoring the women who have reached the very highest echelons of beauty, is an industry staple, there was no recognition of beauty’s emerging leaders. Enter the Top Talent Awards, now in its sixth year, created to honor women, most often mid-career, whose impact on their company has been significant and whose leadership potential is strong.
“Part of our responsibility is to show the wealth of talent that is out there,” said Jacobson, who said that the Top Talent honorees have on average 15 to 25 years of experience working in the industry. “It’s important to shine a light on women in middle management — they are the future. They are the next generation of leadership.”
“They are super aspirational to junior executives as well,” added Jill Scalamandre, CEW’s chairwoman and the president of BareMinerals, of the honorees. “They work directly with younger executives and are real role models. They need to be recognized because they are forming the next generation as well as leading themselves.”
