As women, we know it takes courage and support to lead effectively. And we've seen the difference we can make when we lead boldly. Studies show that companies with more female executives consistently outperform their industry peers. So what is holding us back?
Women represent half of the workforce but only 3% of Fortune 500 CEOs.
Across 10 industries, women hold just 18% of leadership positions.
Girl Scouts lead the way:
75% of professional women of distinction were once Girl Scouts.
80% of female business owners are Girl Scout alumnae.
Building strong, successful girls requires diverse and healthy funding sources. Our generous donors help us follow through with our promise to give every girl the chance to discover the leader she can be.
