The distinguished guest speaker is none other than Tracee Ellis Ross, an accomplished CEO, and an award-winning actress who has made her mark in both the business and entertainment worlds.

Tracee Ellis Ross, known for her dynamic roles on screen, is also the CEO and founder of PATTERN Beauty. Her journey as a business leader and online seller will take center stage at Amazon Accelerate as she shares her insights and experiences with attendees.

Her influence in shaping important conversations continued as she moderated a discussion with Michelle Obama during the “Becoming” book tour. As the Diversity & Inclusion advisor for ULTA Beauty, Tracee champions initiatives that redefine narratives around Black women and consumers, emphasizing joy, self-acceptance, inclusivity, and equity.
