This is a wonderful achievement as we all aspire to do more.”

“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’Oréal Paris President, KarenT.
