As the founder and CEO of ForHerCosmetics, Alyssa Space is building a cosmetics empire that not only diversifies the beauty industry but inspires the next generation of chemists and entrepreneurs. What started in the kitchen of her mother's home has blossomed into a 350 square foot lab in the heart of Detroit, also known as MySpaceLaboratories. This is where the beauty trailblazer formulates each all-natural lip gloss, lipstick, body shimmer, eyeshadow, and highlighter with vegan and cruelty-free ingredients.

Alyssa will discuss her path to a career in STEM, what she has learned about being a woman in business, and share her insights on the beauty industry.
