This is what I found on YAHOO.COM:
Washington (AFP) – Cosmetics chain Sephora closed its US stores for an hour on Wednesday to hold an “inclusivity workshop” for its employees, a month after a Grammy-nominated black singer said she was racially profiled in the shop.
Sephora’s downtown Washington store opened an hour later than usual.
“We truly belong to something beautiful,” said a sign on the door, a reference to the company’s recent “We Belong to Something Beautiful” advertising campaign. “Thank you for your understanding.”
Sephora said the workshops would involve the 16,000 employees of its stores, distribution centers, call centers and US corporate headquarters.
The diversity training comes a month after the African-American singer SZA said she was subjected to racial profiling at a Sephora in Calabasas, California. She tweeted that someone at the beauty chain’s store had “called security to make sure I wasn’t stealing.”
