Here’s to Black women making history. ESSENCE reports that Pamela Culpepper just became luxury fashion brand Prada’s newest board member, and she makes history as the first Black woman to do so in its 109-year history. Along with Anna Maria Rugarli, Culpepper was appointed as the Independent Non-Executive Director of Prada S.p.A., the parent company of Prada. Both were chosen based on their backgrounds in Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG). They will support the Board of Directors with sustainability assessments and any decisions based on the three courses of action at the core of the company’s ESG strategy, which include people, environment, and culture.
