L'Oréal Recognizes "Women of Worth"

Posted: November 4, 2013

L'Oréal Paris unveiled the 2013 Women of Worth honorees, celebrating 10 women who are pursuing their passions to accomplish the extraordinary. Bound by a deep sense of purpose and appetite for change, this group of women will join the community of 70 esteemed Women of Worth honorees from the past eight years. Tackling society's most pressing issues, from helping victims in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary tragedy, to enabling terminally ill seniors accomplish their bucket lists, to building a nonprofit restaurant that helps at-risk youth learn life skills, the 2013 Women of Worth honorees are united in their quest to fuel the future.

With causes that align with issues close to the hearts of women today, each Women of Worth honoree's story is poignant and inspirational. Now through Nov. 20, L'Oréal Paris invites everyone nationwide to vote for their favorite Woman of Worth. Votes drive awareness for these important causes and help select one National Honoree to be awarded an additional $25,000 for her cause. Cast your vote daily through:

"Society's focus on women leadership and female empowerment has reached a fever pitch, and the L'Oréal Paris family is proud to amplify this dialogue as we celebrate this year's incredible Women of Worth honorees, who have worked so hard and sacrificed so much to serve others and accelerate change in their communities," said L'Oreal Paris president Karen T. Fondu. "With passionate vision and ambition, these women are truly emblematic of our brand heritage and philosophy, 'Because You're Worth It,' and we are honored to share their stories as they inspire us all to make a beautiful difference."

Rewarding their outstanding accomplishments, the 2013 Women of Worth honorees, selected by an esteemed panel of judges, each receives $10,000 for her charitable cause and will be acknowledged at a distinguished celebration hosted by L'Oreal Paris on Dec. 3 in New York. Selected through consumer voting, the National Honoree will be announced at the event.

Setting the bar for extraordinary philanthropic efforts, this year's honorees support a variety of admirable causes, from technology and education to aiding at-risk youth, and everything in between.

Celebrating its eighth year, the Women of Worth program is inspired by L'Oréal Paris' iconic brand philosophy, "Because You're Worth It." Since its inception, the program recognized 80 women for embodying the spirit of the L'Oréal Paris brand, through commitment to their communities, selflessness and drive to make a difference in the world.
