Launched in 2015 by the Society of Cosmetic Chemists, the NextGen Initiative was created to help young professionals and students further their education to attain successful and rewarding careers. Bridging the gap between young professionals and established professionals is at the heart of this critical initiative. Brought about by a need to align education and training with workforce needs, our mission is to attract, educate and provide for the advancement of our members.
