THE WHAT? L’Oréal has announced the ten changemakers for its 2021 L’Oréal Paris Women of Worth class, which recognizes the philanthropic achievements of ten non-profit leaders from across the nation.
THE DETAILS The women include, Amanda Munz, Founder of The Fashion Foundation, Briana Daniel, Founder of Street Team Movement, and Natalie Wilson, Founder of Black & Missing Foundation.
The 16th year of the program, the women will join the previous 150 alumnae, and will each receive $20,000 in funding to ‘support their endeavors, mentorship from the L’Oréal Paris community to build their organizations, and a national platform to share their story.’
THE WHY? The women are said to be making meaningful change that addresses some of society’s most pressing issues.
According to L’Oréal, “In a year of tremendous change and need, each woman exemplified extraordinary passion for their community by creating innovative solutions that meet the needs of the most vulnerable.
“These included addressing the rising hate speech and xenophobia against Asian Americans, raising attention to the underreporting of Black missing individuals, and saving lives by advancing awareness for depression and suicide amongst youth.”
