In addition to celebrating and educating about ancient Egyptian culture, one of our main goals when RA was founded was to create a platform, through formulating excellent skincare products, to empower and lift up underserved communities and black, indigenous and people of color (BIPOC).
From the very beginning, we have searched specifically for suppliers with strong social justice initiatives that value and fairly compensate their workers, and that are owned or run by BIPOC. We're proud to say we now have ethical suppliers across the African continent, in Egypt, Uganda, Burkina Faso, South Sudan, Mauritania and Ghana, and are committed to maintaining and growing this supply chain as we move forward.
As part of the #PullUpOrShutUp challenge for beauty companies to reveal their staff diversity, we would like to share with you the positions at RA filled by people of color. BIPOC currently fill the positions of:
- Marketing Director
- Communications Strategist
- Product Photographer
- Production Assistant
As of this writing, people of color comprise 66% of the C-level leadership positions at RA, and as we continue to expand, our diverse staff will continue to grow. BIPOC communities will remain at the top of our list of business-to-business partnerships and social initiatives as RA Egyptian brings the magic of ancient Egypt into daily beauty rituals around the world.
