Cool Women 2018
Honoring Cool Women, Investing in Emerging Leaders
Join us on Friday, April 13 for a fantastic day of championing the cause of girl leadership at our annual Cool Women luncheon and celebration!
11:15 a.m. – Registration and welcome reception
Noon-1:30 p.m. – Luncheon and program
The event begins with a morning mentoring session where Emerging Leader Girl Scouts will meet with some of San Diego’s most successful female executives and community leaders — including our 2018 Cool Women honorees. Participating girls will have the opportunity to ask mentors questions about careers, and learn about education pathways and how to overcome challenges.
Afterwards, top business and civic leaders in our region will come together at the Cool Women luncheon to recognize this year’s trailblazing 2018 Cool Women honorees, respected executives from diverse sectors who are making positive changes in the San Diego community. These female leaders will share the stage with our Emerging Leader Girl Scouts, who will also be recognized for their outstanding achievements by our professional mentors.
