Cultivating Inclusive Wellness

Toshiana "Tosh" Baker, founder of Network of Multi-Cultural Spa and Wellness Professionals (NMSWP) on Tuesday September 21, 2021 at 1:15 - 2:10 pm

Our nation is diversifying even faster than originally predicted. Groups once classified as minority will soon be majority. When also considering other identities beyond race, such as gender, age, ability and religious and cultural beliefs, it is no wonder that many industries have not been able to keep up with the tides of change, including spa and wellness. This session is designed to help inspire, impact and create a shift in awareness by establishing a baseline of understanding of diversity, equity and inclusion while giving actionable ways to incorporate these important initiatives to create a culture of inclusivity in your spa or wellness practice.

Baker will cover topics including understanding the key terms and principles related DEI, understanding common pitfalls and mistakes made in this category and identifying ways to shift your approach to cultivate inclusion.

Brown will cover topics including how halotherapy works, options for stand-alone treatments (no therapist commission to be paid) and add-on or upgrades in conjunction with a facial massage and today's Himalayan salt concepts for halotherapy rooms.
