It is a brand mission that will be accomplished only when we no longer need to remind women that they are worth it. In everything they do, L’Oréal Paris demonstrates its feminist values through events like Women of Worth. For many years, it has honored extraordinary women who volunteer their time to serve their communities. The event provides a high-profile platform to these women and supports them in their ventures with essential financing.
