LANCOME’S GIRL POWER
Byline: Julie Naughton
NEW YORK — Call it girl power.
As part of a partnership that Lancome has formed with Girls Inc., an organization dedicated to inspiring all girls to be strong, smart and bold, Dalia Chammas, senior vice president and general manager of Lancome, cochaired the organization’s 18th annual celebration luncheon at the New York Hilton on Tuesday.
The annual luncheon is intended to inspire girls by introducing them to leading women in business. This year, Chammas joined Joyce Roche, president and chief executive officer of Girls Inc., in honoring Kathleen Dore, president of Bravo Networks; Maria Elena Lagomasino, chairman and ceo, J.P. Morgan Private Bank; Alexandra Lebenthal, president, Lebenthal & Co. Inc., and Pamela Thomas-Graham, president and ceo, CNBC; and SBC Communications Inc. The awards were presented by five young women chosen to receive Girls Inc. national scholarships.
The luncheon for 1,200 raised $1.3 million for the organization, and an additional $1.1 million was given in the form of a grant from SBC Communications.
“Lancome is proud to support an organization that is committed to developing future generations of women leaders,” said Chammas. “Just as Lancome is dedicated to helping women discover their outer beauty, we’re equally as concerned with helping them to develop from within. Therefore, our mission with Girls Inc. is clear — to have a direct impact in helping young girls develop into women who are confident, productive and fulfilled members of society.”
