Warwick, RI – Girl Scouts of Southeastern New England (GSSNE) has openedd nominations for 2020 Leading Women of Distinction Awards.
Anyone can nominate a woman who exemplifies the Girl Scout mission of building girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place; women who demonstrate qualities of leadership and excellence in their life in whatever way you know them. Leading Women of Distinction Honorees are exemplary female role-models for the next generation who emulate the Girl Scout G.I.R.L. spirit of Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker and Leader throughout their careers and serve as inspiring examples for the young girls in our communities.
The LWD selection committee will consider nominations of women who have contributed to the community through professional, family, volunteerism and/or personal endeavors. You do not need to be a Girl Scout in order to qualify.
“We look forward to receiving nominations for the leading women of distinction in your lives who lift up the ideals we seek to instill in every Girl Scout member – courage, confidence, and character. Who are the role models you’d want our Girl Scouts to emulate?” said GSSNE CEO Pam Hyland.
Last October, the four women honored during the awards were:
- Cindy Scibetta Butts, Founder, Grow with Strengths.
- MaryKay Koreivo, Senior VP & Senior Relationship Manager, Bank of America.
- Kathleen Malin, VP of Technology & Operations Management, Rhode Island Foundation.
- Sylvia Maxfield, Dean & Professor at Providence College School of Business.
Since 2015, the GSSNE Leading Women of Distinction Honorees have been a direct reflection of what Girl Scouting stands for—they are both impressive and inspiring. GSSNE hopes that through positive, girl-led experiences and exposure to strong, female role models, all girls are able to thrive in the direction of their ambitions and lead lives full of courage, confidence and character.
