This week, we’re excited to feature five fantastic women we’re honoring at our Women of Distinction Breakfast in October. Each of them inspire today’s girls to become tomorrow’s leaders. First up: VALERIE RAINFORD, a Managing Director and Banking Operations Executive at JPMorgan Chase. Valerie is the most senior African-American female in the whole organization! Growing up in the Bronx, Valerie was a Girl Scout in an after-school program. She remembers those afternoons fondly because, as she says, “there was nowhere else to go.” She can even still sing her Girl Scout troop song! Valerie passed her love of scouting on to her daughters, both of whom were in a troop in Rockland County. For more information: http://www.girlscoutsnyc.org/wod/2015-honorees#valerie
