After a racial happening, involving singer SZA, Sephora will close its US stores for extensive training. The R & B artist had been racially outlined while shopping at a Sephora store in California. The enterprise informed the media it was aware of the incident nut claimed the training was not “a response to any one event”.
Amid racial outlined allegations, Starbucks organized inclusion training. In a post on Twitter, SZA told during shopping at a Sephora store outside of Los Angeles, an employee said she was recognized as “Sandy” had “ called security to make sure I wasn’t stealing”.
The company posted on Twitter replying “ you are a part of the Sephora family, and we are committed to ensuring every member of our community feels welcome and included at our stores.”
Last year US website Refinery 29 reported the singer has worked previously at Sephora.
SZA has been recommended for numerous Grammy awards and collaborated recently with Kendrick Lamar on the track “All the stars” which promoted on the soundtrack of the film Black Panther.
In a Facebook post, Sephora claimed it would hold “inclusion workshops” on the morning of June 5th at its US stores as well as allotment centers and the corporate offices.
Sephora did not respond immediately to the BBC requests for comment about the training.
The representative for Sephora Emili Shapiro informed the media that the store closures were not a response to any one event, claiming that the planning for the “inclusively workshops” had been in progress for months.
