Gold Achievement Gala, May 22, 2022

On Monday, May 16, 2022 at 6:30pmwe celebrated New York City’s best and brightest at the Girls Scouts of Greater New York annual Gold Achievement Gala.

Named for the Girl Scout “Gold Award,” the most prestigious award for Girl Scouts, our Gala honors leaders who exemplify the highest level of achievement and integrity in their fields. 

This year we were thrilled to pay tribute to:

  • Steve Banks, former Commissioner, NYC Department of Social Services, and former Attorney-in-Chief, Legal Aid Society
  • Adebola Osakwe, Global Head of Talent and Diversity, Millennium
  • Jo-Ann Yoo, Executive Director, Asian American Federation

We also celebrated the 5th Anniversary of the formation of Troop 6000, a program designed by Girl Scouts of Greater New York to serve girls and their caregivers in the New York City shelter system. In just five years, Troop 6000 has served over 2,000 girls and women from every borough in NYC.

Every girl deserves a chance to reach her full potential: to have her eyes opened to the possibilities of college and careers, make loving and supportive friends, learn from caring female mentors, and chart her own course to achieve her goals.
