Every day, we strive to make a real, positive impact on our industry. Care to join us?
Impact. It's one of those buzz words people toss around all the time.
But what does it really mean?
At its simplest, impact is all about effect—either having a major effect on someone or something or being a major effect. Whether the effect is positive or negative, well—that's up to the doers behind the impact.
At Milady, we're all about making a positive impact every day. We accomplish this by creating forward-thinking education that reshapes the industry and uplifts the next generation of beauty professionals.
Below, you can learn more about our impact—and the ways you can support our efforts.
Infection Control Awareness Week
A safe workspace doesn’t just “happen.”
Creating healthy and safe workspaces isn’t a box you check off once and then you’re done. It’s an ongoing process—and a moving target. That’s precisely why we launched the Infection Control Awareness Week and encourage everyone to take our two-hour Infection Control course free of charge.
Industry professionals can (and should) re-take it every year to get the biggest benefit and show their clients, colleagues, and the community that they're committed to everyone’s health and safety.
RISE Partner Program for Schools
Giving students the tools they need to potentially save a life
Beauty professionals are in a unique position to not only recognize the signs of domestic abuse and human trafficking, but also do something about it—provided they receive the right training and guidance. When schools participate in the Milady RISE Partner Program, they give their students exactly that—at no cost.
Milady RISE Scholarship
Encouraging ambitious students and professionals to rise to the challenge
Today's students and beauty professionals want to make a difference in their workplaces and communities. This semi-annual scholarship, managed by the Professional Beauty Association, applauds and supports those ambitions by awarding 20 scholarships every year to those who've recently taken training to recognize signs of domestic violence and human trafficking.
N.F. Cimaglia Award and Educator of the Year
Honoring those who have a lasting impact on their students—and the industry
We can't think of a greater privilege than honoring those who shape, influence, and support tomorrow's beauty professionals. Each year, the N.F. Cimaglia Award celebrates an industry leader's outstanding career-long service in beauty education while our Educator of the Year award recognizes an educator who has made significant contributions to educational excellence during the past 12 months.
