Supporting the beauty of fearlessness

We encourage bold choices in beauty—and in life. Sephora Stands is dedicated to inspiring the fearlessness to make those choices. Our programs address the needs of entrepreneurs, communities in transition, and Sephora employees. And together, our company and employees share a commitment to increase our positive social impact.

Sephora Inspires

Even in the beauty industry, female founders are underrepresented. The Sephora Accelerate program supports a growing community of female founders in all areas of the beauty industry.

Sephora Teaches

Looking your best contributes to living more confidently. Sephora’s Classes for Confidence program provides specialized beauty training to inspire and embolden those experiencing major life transitions.

Sephora Gives

We encourage employee generosity through matching donation and volunteer programs. And through the Sephora Stands Together Fund, we stand shoulder-to-shoulder with our employees in times of need.
