CEW, the beauty industry’s membership organization, recognizes the unmistakable beauty of Madam Vice President-elect Kamala Harris: her satiny lips; dewy skin; and smooth hair that has withstood the blustery weather and all the rigors of the 2020 campaign. Further, as an organization whose mission is to advance the professional development of women, CEW acknowledges with great pride this historic step forward for women. This new shattered glass ceiling, for the country and the world, is much needed and welcomed progress. The child of a Black Jamaican father and Indian mother, she is the first graduate of an Historic Black University [HBU], Howard University, to hold such high office. The former Senator and Attorney General of California now takes her place among the constellation of groundbreaking women, setting an example and paving the way for the future of women who may follow in her footsteps, be it to a beauty house or the White House.

Congratulations Madam Vice President-elect Kamala Harris!
