L’Oreal honors 20 scientific female researchers


The L’Oréal Foundation celebrated on March 22, the 20th anniversary of the L’Oréal-UNESCO for Women in Science program at UNESCO Paris headquarters. Five women were honored for their major scientific contributions in the fields of medicine, paleontology, molecular biology and ecology, in addition to, 15 female rising scientific talents. To recall, over the past 20 years, the L’Oréal-UNESCO program has spotlighted 102 winners and supported more than 3000 young and 102 female scientists, including 3 Nobel women Laureates, sparking greater appreciation for them within the scientific community. And, in order to further collaboration between men and women, the L’Oréal Foundation and UNESCO launched the ambitious new initiative, ‘Male Champions for Women in Science’. The latter will involve male leaders through a charter of commitments to encourage them to work with their female colleagues, and hence change the system and employ women potential for the benefit of all.
