Monday marked a milestone for both the American Jewish Committee and for Jean-Paul Agon, chairman and chief executive officer of L’Oréal, who received the organization’s International Human Relations Award. The event, held at the New York Hilton, raised $1.35 million, a record — and also dramatized the recent change of command at L’Oréal, when the outgoing chairman Sir Lindsay Owen-Jones retired on March 17, leaving the chairmanship to Agon. Fittingly, Owen-Jones presented the AJC award to his successor. In discussing how the AJC and L’Oréal share the same values of integrity and tolerance, Agon said the company’s field of business is a place where values matter. “Beauty — like peoples and cultures — is a multifaceted world and a multicolored reality,” he said. “No beauty is better than another, and each one has its own inner truth. We respond to these diverse aspirations with respect and show our willingness to listen.”
