Cosmetic giant L’Oreal USA is making an impact on young women and girls who are interested in Science.  The beauty company announced the launch of ForGirlsInScience.org, an interactive website for girls who are interested and love science.  L’Oreal says this initiative is a natural step, “We are founded by scientist so science is the basis for everything we do.  More than half our scientists are women, so we walk the talk.”

L’Oreal honored five young women researchers at the Women in Sciences Awards on September 13th in New York City.  The award was launched in 2003 as the US component of the UNESCO-L’Oreal for Women in Science International Fellowship program.   The women were chosen out of 281 candidates for the prestigious award.  The winners are Christine Agapakis, a synthetic biologist from UCLA, Lilian Childress, a physicist from Yale University, Joanna Kelley, a geneticist from Stanford University, Erin Marie Williams, an anthropologist from The George Washington University, and Jaclyn Winter, a biochemist from UCLA.  Each of the women were awarded a $60,000 fellowship to support their research.  the program also offers professional development workshops to help them build networks with accomplished female leaders in corporate, academic, governmental and scientific fields.
