In Tooele, we have just recently elected the first ever Mayor of Tooele City--Debbie Winn. Debbie has invited us to participate in the Town Hall and encourage female leaders. We will be taking a tour of City Hall and shadow Debbie during an upcoming afternoon to see what she does and what action she has taken. She is a big advocate for Scouts and is excited to share her "rags to riches" story with the girls. We have been invited to attend the City Council Meeting and Planning Commission Meeting to see our local government in action.
Girl Scout Week—Sunday, March 11 – Saturday, March 17—is a week-long celebration when Girl Scouts spread the word about how they lead as a Girl Scout.
Show the world that Girl Scouts are G.I.R.L.s (Go-getters, Innovators, Risk-takers and Leaders) and lead by practicing grit, problem solving, risk-taking and leading with empathy.
Sunday, March 11 – Saturday, March 17
1. Plan an activity that focuses on supporting women in leadership roles and then tell us about it!
It could be as simple as talking with a local woman business owner about how she got started, or inviting local women leaders—CEOs, legislators, business owners—to speak to the girls and young women in your community and share their stories. The possibilities are endless on what you can do!
Attend a lecture at a college or university given by a woman professor.
Connect with women legislators to discuss your community’s issues.
3. Wear your t-shirt on Girl Scout Day—Monday, March 12—Girl Scouts' birthday
(It's aslo green, so don't forget to wear it on St. Patrick's Day!)
4. Post on social media about how Girl Scouts helps you be a leader and tag us in your pictures!
