Women of Distinction


Held every year on or around the birthday of Girl Scout founder Juliette Gordon Low we have our annual Women of Distinction Breakfast.

This years breakfast was held on October 27. View photos from the event here

A “Woman of Distinction” is an influential leader in her industry and community - someone who, through her deeds and actions, exemplifies the leadership ideals found in Girl Scouting. She is a role model for New York City’s girls and young women, who inspires today’s girls to become tomorrow’s leaders.

This year were thrilled to recognize:

  • Tish Archie-Oliver, Unilever
  • Nancy Doon, VHB
  • Debbie Gregory, eVestment NASDAQ
  • Laura J. Hay, KPMG International
  • Laura Kiernan, High Touch Investor Relations
  • Olita Mills, LaFORCE
  • Kelly Watson, IBM Consulting

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