THE POWER OF RADIANCE AWARDS 2020

Clé de Peau Beauté honors inspiring women who have dedicated themselves to bettering the lives of girls & women through education

In 2019, Clé de Peau Beauté announced a long-term philanthropic endeavor to advocate for girls’ education, empowering a brighter tomorrow. The brand launched the Power of Radiance Awards to honor women from around the world who have acted to drive positive change through knowledge.

Each year, an exceptional woman—or women—will be awarded a grant that can be donated to a charity of their choice in support of educational initiatives. Through the Power of Radiance Awards, Clé de Peau Beauté seeks to empower girls and women to ignite positive change and make a difference in the world.

For 2020, the Power of Radiance Awards recognize Binita Shrestha and Pratiksha Pandey from Nepal, both of whom have made incredible contributions to the education and empowerment of girls in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).

As Directors of Women in STEM Nepal (WiSTEM Nepal), both Binita Shrestha and Pratiksha Pandey are recognized for their pivotal roles in leading STEM education and diversification projects in Nepal, empowering girls and women to pursue their interests in science and technology.
