The Girl Scouts of North East Ohio Women of Distinction award celebration links the leaders of today with our future women leaders we are developing through Girl Scouting, while raising funds to support scholarships for local Girl Scouts.
Our purpose is to honor women throughout northeast Ohio whose individual excellence, strength in character, and high levels of achievement distinguish them as outstanding members of their communities, making them positive role models who inspire girls to achieve their own goals and dreams. Women of Distinction exemplify the Girl Scout Promise and Law through ethical leadership and a commitment to making a difference in the lives of girls and women.
“Our Women of Distinction are determined and courageous leaders who impact the way we live today and who nurture and inspire the young women who will shape our tomorrow,” said Jane Christyson, CEO, Girl Scouts of North East Ohio.
Proceeds from the Women of Distinction event directly support the Girl Scouts’ mission of building girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place. Research shows that Girl Scouts see the value in education. They seek opportunities for expanding their knowledge and skills, they set challenging goals for themselves, and they are resourceful problem solvers. Scholarships raised at the Women of Distinction celebration will provide our future leaders with supplemental funding to pursue a degree in higher education.
The Women of Distinction committee, chaired by Barbara Carlstrom, a 2013 honoree, is now accepting nominations for exceptional women and companies with a strong presence in northeast Ohio. The 15 honorees will be selected based on specific criteria. One company/organization will be selected to receive the Advancing Women Company Award.
This year, three Girl Scouts who were nominated by our council for the National Young Women of Distinction Award presented by Girl Scouts of the USA will also be recognized for their notable accomplishments at our luncheon celebration.
We all know women whose lives exemplify Girl Scout values and who represent the diversity of the Girl Scout membership. Our purpose is to honor these women and share their stories of courage, confidence, and character.
