Career Tip: If you meet a woman doing a STEM job that sounds even remotely interesting to you, see if you can stop by her office for an “informational interview.” At the meeting, ask her every single question you have, even if they seem obvious or silly.
L’Oréal and the Science of Beauty

At L’Oréal, we don’t just depend on science, we believe in science. It’s science that can turn the impossible into the possible, turn a dream into a reality, and in turn, reinvent our future. But none of this is conceivable without the curiosity and creativity of those behind the science: scientists themselves. They are the ones who dream and inspire. So why is there a shortage of women that pursue the field? That is why we at L’Oréal have created a community for girls who love science and a place for them to dream big. That place is For Girls in Science.

What do you want to be when you grow up? The passions that inspire you today could inspire your career choice tomorrow. Hall of Fame Inventor Esther Takeuchi was drawn to inventing by her innate sense of fun. “I’m really driven by curiosity,” Takeuchi has said. “A lot of times, people who aren’t scientists don’t realize the level of creativity and novelty that’s involved in scientific experiments." With 145 patents on her resume, she’s at work perfecting the electric car battery of the future. But it all began with a little girl’s love for asking, “why?”

Dr. Antonia Coello Novello developed a passion for medicine after losing her father at the age of four and suffering illness herself, as a child.
