Mita Mallick has spent over 15 years as a storyteller, leading iconic brands like AVEENO, AVON Color Cosmetics, Chapstick, Vaseline, Suave and Dove. Throughout her career, she has fought hard for inclusion, ensuring Black and Brown people were represented in campaigns and ensuring products were for all skin tones.
Mita believes that diversity of thought doesn’t happen without diversity of representation.
She says, “When you have all those points of views, life experiences, and cultural backgrounds coming together around a table, colliding, clashing, and collaborating - that’s when magic happens.
