The nomination period for the fifth annual L’Oréal Paris Women of Worth Awards is now open. The awards honour the extraordinary efforts of Canadian women making a difference in the lives of others. Do you know a Canadian woman who fits the bill? Nominate her now.
“Each and every year, we are inspired, humbled and enlightened by the stories of women who devote their lives to making impactful changes for others,” said Ali Fakih, general manager for L’Oréal Paris Canada in a press release. “Our mandate is to provide these women with another platform in which they can raise awareness for their causes and continue the important work they are doing to bring even more positive change to this world. While this year has not been without its challenges, we’ve seen exceptional women stand up and continue to pioneer change.”
This year, honourees for the L’Oréal Paris Women of Worth Awards will be selected based on the following criteria: addressing a crucial need in the community, the impact their inspiring contributions have made, their innovation on developing solutions and their passion to evoke change and inspire future generations.
Each honouree will receive a $10,000 donation to their non-profit cause. Traditionally, honourees are flown to Toronto on International Women’s Day (March 8) for a gala event with an A-list host (Aja Naomi King, Blake Lively and Helen Mirren have previously hosted the event). However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the event will be reimagined this year.
