There is no doubt that gender inequality still exists today, and our girls deserve better. In these critical times, we are paying attention, mobilizing, and demanding representation. Every voice matters. Every experience counts. A conversation is a starting point. So, what's next?

Join us for an evening that demonstrates: Action Speaks Louder.

Celebrate Girl Scouts, along with civic and corporate leaders, who are standing up for what is right, fighting for issues that matter to them, and taking action toward progress and equality.
