Achiever Awards Legacy

Celebrating women’s achievement, empowerment, and excellence in the beauty industry is at the core of CEW’s DNA, namely through its Achiever Awards program. For the past 47 years, CEW has sought out the best and brightest in the industry, selecting those who excel in leadership, philanthropy, mentorship, and strategic know-how to be honored as Achievers.

Past Achievers include Olaplex’s JuE Wong, Ulta Beauty’s Monica Arnaudo, Unilever’s Esi Eggleston Bracey, Drunk Elephant’s Tiffany Masterson, The Estée Lauder Companies’ Tracey Travis, Procter & Gamble’s Alex Keith, Sephora’s Artemis Patrick, L’Oréal’s Megan Grant and Erica Culpepper. CEW is committed to selecting Achievers who represent the diversity of the beauty industry in terms of race, culture, and industry disciplines.

Honoring Female Leaders

The Achiever Awards serve as inspiration for the entire industry as they honor and celebrate the most accomplished women in beauty.  We are excited to announce that the Achiever Awards are now part of The Women’s Leadership Awards, a 2-day, hybrid celebration of women and achievement, recognizing the Achiever and Social Impact honorees.

The 2022 Women’s Leadership Awards are taking place on June 2nd – 3rd, 2022. Click below to learn more about the event.
