L’Oréal Paris: Women of Worth

L’Oréal Paris: Women of Worth

L’Oréal Paris' Women of Worth program honours extraordinary women who selflessly volunteer their time to serve their communities. The signature philanthropic program embodies the L’Oréal Paris tenet that “every woman is worth it” by elevating women who find beauty in giving back.

This year, L’Oréal Paris has partnered with the Toronto International Film Festival to celebrate and spotlight female voices in the industry because we believe we’re all worth it. Discover how these five Canadian women pioneers are empowering and inspiring other women in the industry.
