How can you take action for equality? Girls in grades 6–12 are invited to join Girl Scouts of the USA, Little Brownie Bakers, and The David and Lura Lovell Foundation for an engaging chat with inspiring women, including corporate leaders and National Gold Award Girl Scouts on Saturday, February 20, 2021 from 11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. MST. Hosted by Girl Scout Seniors and Ambassadors (grades 9–12), this virtual event—Diversity, Inclusion, and You: Girls Making a Difference—will lift up people who advance diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) to make the world a better place.
Panelists will discuss how they have furthered DEI in the workplace and in their communities. They will talk about their efforts to end violence against Indigenous women, expand the inclusion of people with disabilities, increase the visibility of the LGBTQ+ community, combat food deserts, and address menstrual stigma.
Girls who attend will:
Learn about careers that are focused on advancing DEI
Think about and gain inspiration for their own Take Action projects or Girl Scout Gold Award projects
Learn—and be able to ask questions—about issues related to DEI
Questions for the guest speakers are welcomed in advance and will be considered for the live Q&A segment of the event. Please submit your questions with your registration.
Unable to attend live? Not to worry! Register now and you’ll be able to view the playback when it’s available.
Note: In order to be responsive to girls’ needs, some discussions during this panel may focus on subjects that may be considered sensitive in nature.
We want to hear how your girl is using her Girl Scout skills by taking initiative, caring for the community, and Girl Scouting at home. She can send in her story here.
