LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ/Press Release) – Girl Scouts of Kentucky’s Wilderness Road is launching a new virtual series designed to highlight extraordinary local women who have impacted the local community and shaped business and civic sectors throughout the State of Kentucky and Greater Cincinnati.
Backed by more than 100 years of excellence, Girl Scouts has a proven track record of fueling the female leadership pipeline by providing rigorous leadership development opportunities.
The ‘Unstoppable Women Series’ will act as a tribute to the effective and inspiring programming that Girl Scouting offers, with many of the ‘Unstoppable Women’ pointing to skills learned through their involvement in Girls Scouts as instrumental to their personal aspirations and career achievement.
Nearly 80% of women who have had Girl Scout experiences attribute their personal and professional success to Girl Scouting.
Kicking off Unstoppable Women will be Rachel Roberts, Kentucky State Representative (D), business owner and philanthropist; Rachel also serves on the GSKWR Board of Trustees.
