About the Women of Distinction Breakfast

Each fall, the Girl Scouts of Greater New York gathers on or around Girl Scout founder Juliette Gordon Low’s birthday to honor Women of Distinction who serve as role models of ethical leadership for the girls we serve. We also honor one extraordinary Girl Scout each year who represents the ideals inherent in Girl Scouting with the Future Woman of Distinction Award.

Over the Women of Distinction Breakfast’s 27-year history we have honored many extraordinary women. Our list of past honorees includes Maria Bartiromo, Trish McEvoy, Christine Quinn, Deborah Roberts, and Vera Wang to name a few.

About the Future Woman of Distinction Award

The Future Woman of Distinction Award is given to one Ambassador Girl Scout in New York City each year who represents the ideals inherent in Girl Scouting through her participation in and commitment to community service, high academic achievement, leadership skills and ability to communicate the value of Girl Scouting.

About the Girl Scouts of Greater New York

Since 1913, the Girl Scouts of Greater New York has served more than five million girls in New York City, preparing them to lead with courage, confidence and character, to make the world a better place. Today, we serve over 31,000 girls ages 5 to 18 in every zip code of New York City’s five boroughs. 70% of the girls we serve come from low-to-moderate income homes; their participation is heavily subsidized by the Council.

Proceeds from the Women of Distinction Breakfast benefit leadership programs for the over 31,000 girls reached by Girl Scouting in New York City.
