Values Statement
BOBSA has created an international strategy for the Black Hair Care & Cosmetic industry. We establish roles and obligations for the private and public markets as part of an international strategy covering ownership, management, employment equity, skills development, procurement, corporate social responsibility, investment and enterprise formation.
We recognize, value, and seek out those individuals and businesses that have a positive impact on related traditional and new hair care institutions. We have connected the black dots in communities where these opportunities were not readily available to the African American demographic.
