Haiti73 Agency Ltd
Speaking & Engagement
Soho House Paris

Moderator ~ Soho house Paris

I moderated a conference at Soho house Paris, to talk about the new French law on hair discrimination. 

Haiti73 Agency experience around the afro hair consumer can confirm that such a law would be a game changer in small or big ways. The perception of people with kinky hair and darker skin tone would be able to have a fairer shot at life and it would also improve well being and mental health of people of darker skin tone. 

This discussion enabled us to tackle important topics such as past experiences, what it would mean concretely in the workplace and at school, with depth and understanding with a fantastic panel, providing a space for rich and engaging conversation.
