This month's Community Night Roundtable featured a special panel of GlossGenius Ambassadors and Educators who took us through their journey, experience, and wisdom as entrepreneurs and proud members of the LGBTQIA+ Community. After the roundtable, we asked each of our panelists to share a special piece of wisdom about what it means to create an inclusive space in their salon environment. Watch their responses below.

Question: “What specific actions have you taken to show allyship in building your salon business? How do you make inclusion possible without having to think about it?”

Question: “What advice would you give to those who want to become stronger allies, who may not identify as LGBTQ+ but who want to support the community?”
