For the fifth year, L’Oréal Paris Canada has announced their Women of Worth honourees. Each year, an extraordinary group of strong, diverse, and passionate women leaders, who work tirelessly to implement global change and bring hope to Canadians. The 2021 Women of Worth honourees are held in high esteem for the considerable influence their actions have had across a variety of causes and initiatives. On International Women’s Day, a $10,000 grant will be presented to each honouree towards her charity.
This year, three out of the ten honourees are from Toronto, giving back to their community. These remarkable women continue to push and innovate, especially during these current challenging times, and are being recognized for their on-going fight for positive and critical change.
