Fight for Every Girl and Woman

No comments

Our 2017 ToGetHerThere Luncheon takes place Monday, Oct. 30. Will you support us in the fight for gender parity in the leadership landscape?

Past supporters and Emerging Leader Girl Scouts—selected each year to attend the luncheon and its accompanying minute-mentoring session—have shared their experiences with us. For many of them, ToGetHerThere has been transformative.

“I have had the pleasure of attending each of our past ToGetHerThere events and they have grown and developed into great opportunities for both our girls and members of the community. I have been a mentor twice and am amazed at the levels these young ladies have achieved.

Last year I enjoyed having Cherry Ying—a remarkable Girl Scout [and a 2017 National Young Woman of Distinction]—at my table. Cherry and I emailed a few times after the luncheon. She has since graduated and is taking on actuarial studies and programming at the University of Chicago.

Our guests attending the ToGetHerThere event have been quite astounded at where Girl Scouting is today. As with most of us, they think of cookies—but not that it is a financial literacy program; or camping—but not that it is nature, science, skill-building, and more. Today’s girls learn many more new and different things compared to those of us from the 1960s and 1970s. However, the foundation of Girl Scouting remains the same, and this also stands out when you meet the girls who join us at each table.”

“The ToGetHerThere Luncheon is an amazing opportunity for young women to realize they have the love and support of corporations around them. I personally learned so much from the wonderful mentors and businesses about how to succeed professionally. The luncheon encouraged me to dream big for my future and the future of all women in the workforce.”

“The whole process of becoming an Emerging Leader—the application, the interview, and even the orientation meetings where we learned to present our best selves (and proudly represent Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles)—has helped ready me for college, jobs, and other applications that require a similar effort. I was honored to be chosen to speak at the 2016 ToGetHerThere Luncheon: This alone was a crash-course in media and event production. And of course, meeting and networking with local women business and industry leaders was the highlight!”
