Coty and Global Citizen enter long-term partnership to fight discrimination

Coty this week announced a partnership with social action platform Global Citizen to fight prejudices and discrimination.

The beauty company is one of many companies to partner with Global Citizen, including Gucci, which partners with the international advocacy group on ChimeHack, the hackathon designed to create innovative solutions for girls and women.
The new long-term partnership between Coty and Global Citizen will focus on those who face discrimination based on their gender, sexual orientation, disability or ethnicity by challenging the norms, stereotypes and policies that perpetuate prejudice and discrimination around the world.
Coty and Global Citizen will co-create a digital-led online platform that will utilize data science technologies to allow employees to take actions on issues related to discrimination. The new platform will be the first of its kind.
“At Coty, we believe beauty is about self-expression, individuality and inclusion, but too often people are held back by labels,” said Coty CEO Camillo Pane.
“As a beauty company we have an important role to play in changing attitudes and mindsets that keep people from achieving their full potential. We admire the disruptive and modern methods that Global Citizen have used to make real impact on some of the world’s biggest challenges. That’s why we’re partnering with them and mobilizing our people to take action.”
