“Founded in America in 1954, in France in 1986 and the UK in 1992, CEW, a trade organisation with a philanthropic arm, has pursued a mission of nurturing and recognising top executive talent – whilst raising money for their independent intiative ‘Cancer and Careers.’ 

The 600 strong membership of CEW (UK) includes executive women in the cosmetic, fragrance and hairdressing industries and related fields such as advertising, public relations, product development, marketing, media, finance, sales, retail, management and design and packaging. These women hold entry level, middle-management and senior management positions and all enjoy attending CEW’s events for the invaluable networking opportunities these events offer.

CEW (UK) mission statement is to advance the professional growth and leadership development of women in the cosmetic industry through:
– Career Development Programs
– Networking opportunities
– Access to industry leaders
– Recognition of achievement

It is our aim to help women network and raise their visibility within the beauty industry and, to this end, we manage a programme of events every year for industry leaders and celebrity speakers to share their incredible experience and insight.

Now in its third year, CEW increased the categories to 26, adding Best British Brand and Best Iconic Beauty Product amongst others.

A trade organisation with a philanthropic arm, CEW (UK) raises money for Cancer and Careers, CEW’s own independent initiative supporting women with cancer who wish to continue to work.
