  • The barriers to entry and growth that exist in the industry;
  • How issues of gender, race, sexuality and ethnicity all intersect and impact diversity in aesthetics;
  • Why representation and education matter, not just for patients but also for providers;
  • How client experience is negatively impacted by a lack of diversity in marketing;
  • Tolerance vs. acceptance;

  • And much, much more!
