First launched in 2015, the GSSNE Leading Women of Distinction Awards is a unique fundraiser that celebrates local accomplished women who exemplify the mission of the Girl Scouts. In 2020, the event took place virtually, but we were still able to share the amazing successes and achievements that these women have achieved and how they positively impact our local communities. Our honorees are women within the communities that our council represents who:
- Lead by example and exemplify the Girl Scout mission of
building girls of courage, confidence and character who make the
world a better place—the women who demonstrate qualities of
leadership and excellence in their life in whatever way you know
- Are exemplary female role-models for the next
generation of female leaders.
The Leading Women of Distinction selection committee will consider nominations of women who have contributed through professional, family, and/or personal accomplishments. The committee will select up to five honorees to recognize. Honorees will be notified by July 30, 2021. The LWA breakfast will take place on October 7, 2021 at the Squantum Club in East Providence, Rhode Island. The deadline for submissions is June 15, 2021 at 11:59 pm.
