We always have our eyes on supporting women within our communities here in Canada. Women who are striving to make a difference whether it be in their personal lives or for the greater good all have inspiring stories to share. We are here for it all! We’ve also just learned that L’Oréal Paris has announced submission for the Canadian edition of the 2020 Women of Worth Grant Award Program are now open. Want to nominate someone? Read on!
Proudly entering its fourth year, the signature philanthropic initiative honours a diverse group of trailblazing Canadian women. The awards shine a spotlight on extraordinary women who selflessly volunteer their time to serve their communities and make a positive impact on the lives of others. Now through January 5, 2020 all Canadians are encouraged to nominate women who demonstrate commitment and leadership, make significant contributions across a breadth of causes and important initiatives and strive to create a more beautiful and accepting world for everyone.
The nominees will be judged on four distinct 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. The 10 select women will each receive a $10,000 donation to their non-profit cause and the chance to be recognized as a L’Oréal Paris Women of Worth honouree – joining an esteemed alumni of women who continue to make a tremendous impact in their communities. Additionally, the 10 honourees will receive an all-expense paid trip for two to Toronto to attend the notable, star-studded awards gala hosted by L’Oréal Paris on March 8, 2020, coinciding with International Women’s Day
Past award recipients have made significant advancements in supporting Canadian families struggling with food insecurity; providing means for families to break free of domestic violence; increasing accessibility of cultural and tourist services for those living with limited physical abilities; evolving the preservation and protection of our environment and lifting socio-economic barriers of access to menstrual products for Northern Indigenous communities.
