What's Happening In These Social Media Streets - What is DEIAB?

Thereโ€™s a saying that says you donโ€™t know what you donโ€™t know. But- when know better you do better. Last week I did a poll to find out how many people felt overwhelmed about how to implement DEIAB in there salon. No worries my passion in life is to help you make the business of your dreams all while creating a safe and welcoming space for all.

Here are 6 Ways to Implement DEIAB in Your Salon:

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿฟ Take a self-assessment to look inward

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿผ Uncover unconscious bias

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿป Embody inclusive branding

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿพ Use inclusive language

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿฝ Build an inviting salon that creates a sense of belonging

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿฟ Use gender-neutral pricing

These are just a few ways you can implement DEIAB in your salon. If this feels overwhelming to you, remember that this is also a life-long journey! Creating a diverse and inclusive business takes time and should be a continuous process as you learn more about what it looks like. If you need help SLAYing remember I am here to help.

What you missed - On the blog last week

This month we are celebrating Black History Month, and if you know anything about me, you know that I believe that Black History IS American History and should be celebrated 365 days a year!

Black History Month is an opportunity for all of us to honour, respect, and recognize the value and humanity of Black people. That is why I want to share with you all two of the most influential women in history and the beauty space who happened to be Black Women. You can read about here is last weekโ€™s blog post.

How data is helping DEI further

Data can tell us so many things. Collecting data on staff composition allows a business to track changes in diversity over time and compare itself to other similar businesses.

This information can then be used to develop targeted recruitment strategies and identify potential gaps in hiring practices. Understanding the existing composition of your team is key to developing targeted recruitment strategies that will attract more diverse talent. Please click here to read this article from Alysha M. Campbell โ€œWondering about the impact of a data-driven culture on DEI? Here are 10 ways data is helping push DEI furtherโ€.
