L'Oréal Paris in partnership with NDTV has launched the ‘Women of Worth’ Awards, a platform and campaign that will scout, recognize and felicitate the achievements of ordinary women who have achieved extraordinary success in making a difference to the lives of others through their bravery, convictions and drive.
Present at a ceremony to announce the nominees were Manashi Guha (VP - Marketing, L’Oréal Paris India), Sonam Kapoor (L'Oréal Paris Brand Ambassador), Vikram Chandra (Group CEO, NDTV) and the panel of jury members. The jury members present exemplified the same admirable qualities possessed by the nominees – a dedication to being true to themselves, a devotion to community and outstanding achievement in their respective fields.
Guha said, “Women of Worth Awards is philanthropically a huge initiative undertaken by the brand to strongly support the extraordinary contribution made by Indian women in their respective fields. These awards are our small way to distinguish the achievements of such women who embody the spirit and values of the L’Oréal Paris brand. It is the ideal platform for us to salute them and a matter of pride for us to associate with NDTV, who also believes in empowering women.”
Sonam Kapoor said, “It’s an honour to be a part of this amazing campaign and the Women of Worth awards that is the brainchild of L’Oréal Paris. The brand has always celebrated the strong spirit of women, and these awards are a perfect way to admire and thank these accomplished women who represent the changing face of modern India. With their unwavering passion, determination, selfless contribution and ability to pursue their dreams, they are a true inspiration and I’m extremely happy to be in the presence of such great ‘Women of Worth’.”
NDTV’s Chandra commented, “Women empowerment is a cause NDTV has firmly believed in. The Women of Worth initiative to honour real women from different walks of life is an excellent platform to discuss the issues faced by them and find solutions for the same. Extraordinary women are emerging as the real ‘she-roes’ with their grit and determination. We really hope that through this association, NDTV and L’Oréal become the voice to encourage more women to make a significant difference in our society.”
On International Women’s Day, March 8 2016, a conclave with eminent personalities, opinion leaders, the ‘Women of Worth 2016’ jury members and spokespersons from L’Oréal Paris and NDTV will be organized to discuss a range of subjects impacting the evolving role of women in India and issues impacting society.
