Congratulations to our 2022 Cool Women Honorees

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 mentoring session, luncheon and ceremony on March 24, the Cool Women of 2022 we witnessed these young people, our Emerging Leader Girl Scouts, in action networking with guests at the tables, and presenting from the stage.

Thank you to those of you who already contributed to this critical cause. Proceeds from this event support programs that empower Girl Scouts to use their voices and develop a strong sense of self, step outside their comfort zones and build resilience.  If you haven’t had a chance yet, its not too late! YOU can empower even more girls. Please empower Girl Scouts with your tax-deductible donation today.

Special Thanks to Our 2022 Emcee
