Check the Panel lineup below:

The New Face of Beauty

12:30 – 1:00PM

We have seen diversity really shake up the beauty industry — in a good way! Brands are expanding their foundation and concealer ranges to include more shades and so many hair care brands now have products geared towards curly and natural hair. This panel will focus on how this expansion has a positive effect on both men and women and how we can continue the growth of inclusion.

Gen Zen

2:00 – 2:30PM

It’s no secret that those who identify as Millennials and Gen Z are incredibly tolerant, and this panel will explore exactly what has led to this and how harmonious this makes everyday life. Whether that be someone’s work life, love life, or personal life, accepting people the way that they are obviously just makes life #amazing.

Slash Generation

4:15 – 4:45PM

While no one can argue that honing our talent and skill is a bad idea, who would have thought an entire generation would make their living by showcasing every skill possible? Once believed to be a drawback, being an actor/rapper/nurse has a number of pros to it — not only in gaining skills that are necessary and sought after, but also allowing people to pursue all of their passions. Panelists will weigh in on the ways that they embody the “Slash Generation” and their thoughts on the negative (and positive) response to it.

Digital Download

5:15 – 5:45PM

The digital revolution happened fast, with social media platforms and YouTube exploding onto the scene. Expansion undoubtedly seems like the future for the digital age, but how far or wide can it expand? Panelists discuss what they love and/or hate about the digital world as well as where they think the future of digital is headed.

Empire State of Mind

1:15 – 1:45PM

Entrepreneurship is at an all-time high, and this panel will focus on the tips and tricks of being successful, how to retain your success as well as what can be learnt from failures. This panel will also focus on inspiration for success and the best way to overcome setbacks

More Than Just a Pretty Face

3:15 – 3:45PM

Sure, we love makeup and fashion as much as the next person, but there’s something much deeper to all of us. We care about civil rights of all types; LGBTQ and race issues just to name a few, as well as student debt, and environmental rights as much as we care about grabbing that new highlighter that’s hitting shelves soon. This panel focuses on finding the balance between creating content that highlights serious issues and lighthearted, snackable content.

Breaking The Mold

4:45 – 5:15PM

Ever wish you could make your own rules? These panelists will talk about thinking outside the box and challenging the norm to achieve your dreams and carve your own path to success.
