How they are making an impact with
Since 2007, the L’Oréal Foundation has implemented projects in beauty and science for women all over the world. The foundation looks to support women in the science field, through programmes such as ‘Pour les Femmes et la Science’ which allows high school girls to join the science field thanks to the foundation’s ambassadors.
The foundation looks to help vulnerable people rebuild their lives by providing care in terms of beauty and wellness. The L’Oreal Foundation looks to improve employment opportunities for people in more than 25 countries through training in various beauty professions.
"Thanks to the Optimy solution, we manage the flow of requests, organise them by theme, receive a detailed project description, and can provide answers to all project submitters"
L’ORÉAL-UNESCO FOR WOMEN IN SCIENCE
The L’Oréal-UNESCO for Women in Science fellowship was established in 1998 and looks to support women under-represented in the science field. This fellowship has supported more than 2,700 female scientists, and (in collaboration with its subsidaries) has awarded more than 250 fellows in doctoral/post-doctoral studies from 115 countries. Three of these laureates – Ada Yonath, Elizabeth H. Blackburn and Christiane Nüsslein-Volhard – have gone on to win Nobel Prizes in science.
Every year the fellowship recognises five female scientists for their exceptional work in science. The programme has recently started holding award ceremonies for these laureates, for instance in 2017 five laureates received an €100,000 award for their scientific contributions to quantum physics, physical science and astrophysics.
Every year, among the 275 winners of the foundations fellowships awarded worldwide, 15 young researchers are also identified as the future of science and given a ‘Rising Talents’ grant.
The L’Oréal Foundation supports projects conducted by non-profit organisations and are related to science and beauty as an act of solidarity.
The L’Oréal Foundation is committed to supporting female researchers, therefore needed a one-top solution to be able to:
