L’Oréal Paris is proud to partner with brand spokesperson Julianna Margulies to unveil the opening of the Women of Worth awards’ 2012 nomination period. “Having personally met past Women of Worth honorees, I can say with full confidence that these ‘women of worth’ have dedicated their lives to helping others realize their worth every day,” said Julianna Margulies.
Now in its seventh year, Women of Worth has honored and celebrated 60 inspiring women who are making a difference in their communities. Starting today, L’Oréal Paris encourages everyone to nominate a woman they admire for her selfless dedication to volunteerism and charitable efforts to help the brand identify 10 more incredible women to join the Women of Worth roster.
Inspired by the brand’s iconic slogan “Because You’re Worth It,” currently celebrating its 40th anniversary, the Women of Worth program seeks nominees who are bringing this philosophy to life through their commitment to a variety of relevant social causes. Making strides and bringing attention to causes like bullying, nutrition in underserved communities and pediatric cancer, past honorees have dedicated themselves to conquering inadequacies at the local and national level, and empowered others in the community to take a stand.
The Women of Worth nomination period runs through May 31st. Visit womenofworth.com to nominate a woman who saw a need in the community and took action.
Ten motivational honorees will be chosen for their momentous contributions. Each honoree receives $10,000 for her charitable cause, and one National Honoree will be chosen via a public online vote to receive an additional $25,000 for her charity. All ten honorees will be recognized, and the National Honoree will be announced, at an awards ceremony and dinner hosted by Hearst Magazines and L’Oréal Paris in New York City.
