“We are very proud to have changed the face of science by supporting women in science” said Jean-Paul Agon, Chairman and CEO of L'Oréal and Chairman of L'Oréal Foundation. “We are convinced that science and women bring hope and foster discovery, innovation and excellence. All the best talents must be called upon to accomplish this mission. L'Oréal believes in women, L'Oréal believes in science.”

Established in 1998, the L'Oréal-UNESCO partnership is a long-term commitment to recognizing women in science and supporting scientific vocations. For Women in Science has grown into a global programme that includes International, Regional and National Fellowships and an international network of over 2,000 women in over 100 countries.
