Announcing the 2020 Cool Women

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.

Co-chairs Bink Cook, Dea Hurston, Lidia S. Martinez, and Patti Roscoe invite you to join us for an inspiring day as we honor the Cool Women of 2020 and introduce the Emerging Leader Girl Scout Class of 2020. These young women of outstanding achievement who embody the spirit of the Girl Scout Promise and Law.

The Emerging Leaders will spend the morning in a mentoring session with Cool Women alums and other professional women and female community leaders.

Event 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.
