Girl Scouts of North East Ohio established the Women of Distinction award to honor women who go above and beyond to make our communities better places to live, work, and raise a family.
Scholarships raised at the Women of Distinction celebration will provide our future leaders with supplemental funding to pursue a degree in higher education.
The 15 women honored here are those whose achievements represent the fulfillment of the Girl ScoutPromise and Law. They are selected for their remarkable achievements as business, community, andcivic leaders dedicated to supporting opportunities for women and girls. In the past, many of them were Girl Scouts as children, volunteers, or support the organization because they believe in its mission of building girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. Affiliation with Girl Scouts is not a requirement. However, being a role model for girls IS required. See below for specific criteria.
One company or organization will be selected to receive this award. The company or organization will have demonstrated a proven commitment to advancing women in the workplace.
Companies/organizations headquartered outside of the 18 counties GSNEO serves are permitted to be nominated should the entity have a strong presence in the northeast Ohio region.
