On the heels of new research indicating that helping others is the #1 driver of self-worth, L’Oréal Paris is currently joining thousands of women – including Maria Shriver, Eva Longoria and Lea Michele – for the first-ever Women of Worth (WOW) Forum. Today's Twitter discussion will focus on the power of self-worth and its ability to propel women forward, and there's still time for West Coasters to get involved.
To engage in the conversation, follow @LOrealParisUSA and tweet during one of the remaining chats using #WomenofWorth:
8 p.m. ET: The Beauty of Worth: Achieving Happiness in Life, Work and Love
9 p.m. ET: What’s Worth It: Charting Your Course & Realizing Your Dreams
The WOW Forum launches the brand’s 9th annual Women of Worth program and will serve as an opportunity to encourage women to nominate a Woman of Worth in their life – someone who has passionately dedicated her time to serving others through volunteerism.
L’Oréal Paris has also found some additional motivating stats in their Worth Study Findings:
· Self-worth strengthens with age: Women 60+ report highest levels of self-worth.
· Money matters but not wealth: Financial insecurity is among the most significant detractors of self-worth. However, only 15 percent of women associate women with a strong sense of self-worth with being wealthy.
· Women fuel Women’s Worth: Over 90 percent of women’s self-worth role models are women they have a personal connection with.
· Social media has an impact: All that time online is paying off – 49 percent of women share that likes or comments on a photo or post contribute to their sense of self-worth.
· Self-worth isn’t superficial: When asked what qualities a woman with strong self-worth is very likely to have; hard working (75 percent), independent (72 percent), honest (71 percent) and resourceful (70 percent) rose to the top, fit (27 percent) beautiful (22 percent) and wealthy (15 percent) were at the bottom.
· Worth is conflicted: While eight in ten women report a strong sense of self-worth, 75 percent of women say they are very hard on themselves and 78 percent of women agree they don’t give themselves the credit they deserve.
So join in tonight and continue this amazing momentum of self-worth.
