Each year, Girl Scouts San Diego honors exemplary women whose personal and professional lives make them consummate role models for girls. Cool Women make the world a better place as they balance work, family, friends, and community service.

During a virtual ceremony on April 30, the Cool Women of 2021 shared the spotlight with the 42 Emerging Leader Girl Scouts who were recognized for their outstanding achievements and potential.

On a unique virtual event platform, our Emerging Leader Girl Scouts, Cool Women, executive mentors, and guests forged connections that will advance female leadership in San Diego.

Proceeds support programs that empower girls to use their voices, develop a strong sense of self, step outside their comfort zones, and build resilience.

Thank you to our guests, champions, honorary committee, and sponsors for generously supporting girls to discover new skills, develop a strong sense of self, step outside their comfort zones, and build resilience. Together, we are shaping and resourcing a bright future!

Congratulations to the Cool Women of 2021

2020 Cool Women Event

On June 12, 2020, we saluted the Cool Women of 2000-2019 and our 2020 Emerging Leader Girl ScoutsWatch the 2020 program and view our 2020 Cool Women Yearbook.

Cool Women are consummate role models for girls, and the courage, confidence, and character of our inspirational Emerging Leader Girl Scouts embody our mission.

Generous supporters donated $128,000 for programs that will empower today’s Girl Scouts to be the Cool Women of tomorrow. Special thanks to the Cool Women alums who jointly matched $25,000 of the gifts.

Former CEO Jo Dee Jacob, a Cool Woman of 2016, shared the origins of the Cool Women program during this inspirational event. We reminisced with Cool Women alums and discovered what they’re up to now; and heard from CEO Carol Dedrich and 2019 National Gold Award Girl Scout Ana De Almeida Amaral of Chula Vista.
