We all know L’Oréal as a large international cosmetics company with the famous slogan ‘Because you’re worth it’. Well, they definitely believe we do! Because L’Oréal has been supporting women scientists for many years and they have supported WATT too!

The Foundation L’Oréal and UNESCO have worked together for more than 20 years to help empower more women scientists to achieve scientific excellence and participate equally in solving the great challenges facing humanity.

Each year, the L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science programmes honours 5 laureates and supports more than 250 talented young women researchers. Through its 54 regional and national programmes, the Foundation L’Oréal and UNESCO support them at a crucial period in their careers, during their thesis or post-doctoral studies.
