Women of Distinction

Women of Distinction

The Girl Scouts annual Women of Distinction program brings together and recognizes a group of purpose-driven, women leaders in business, government, and philanthropy; who, like our girls, are dedicated to service and leadership.  Honorees do not need to be previous Girl Scouts, however a connection to Girl Scouts is recommended.
