20 Years of Honoring Cool Women...
a lifetime of investing
in Emerging Leaders
For 20 years, Girl Scouts San Diego has honored 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.
Prior to the luncheon, the Emerging Leaders will spend the morning in a mentoring session with Cool Women alums and other professional women and female community leaders.
Proceeds will support programs that empower Girl Scouts to use their voices, develop a strong sense of self, step outside their comfort zones, and build resilience.
The connections forged among our Emerging Leader Girl Scouts, Cool Women, executive mentors, and luncheon guests will advance female leadership in San Diego.
