Women of Worth Awards
L'Oreal Paris has announced a call for nominations for the L'Oreal Paris Women of Worth awards, an annual program that honors women who are making a beautiful difference in the world through voluntarism.
Since 2006, the program, in partnership with Points of Light, has recognized eighty inspiring women who have selflessly devoted themselves to causes at the local and national level — and have motivated others to do likewise. Past honorees have been involved in a range of important causes, from advocating for victims of childhood abuse and mentoring homeless youth, to helping break the cycle of poverty and empowering teens with disabilities.
Ten individuals will each be awarded $20,000 to support their philanthropic initiative, mentorship from the L’Oréal Paris network and a national platform to share their story. One will be named this year’s National Honoree, receiving an additional $25,000 towards their philanthropic endeavors.
Deadline for nominations: Apr. 30, 2022
