LIVE! Awesome Girls: Engineer Your World

Join Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) for a show and tell with Mary Barra, Chairman & CEO of General Motors, and Sylvia Acevedo, CEO of Girl Scouts. LIVE! Awesome Girls: Engineer Your World is Wednesday, August 5, 2020 from 12 – 1 p.m. (MDT). Register now: http://girlscoutsathome.girlscouts.org/girlscoutsathome/detail/231/1596650400000

This Awesome Girls online event will bring together two of America’s boldest leaders. Mary Barra is Chairman and CEO of General Motors, our country’s biggest car maker. Mary is changing the automotive industry, making cars safer and better for our environment. Sylvia Acevedo is CEO of Girl Scouts. As an actual rocket scientist, she’s leading the way for girls to take on some of the world’s biggest challenges. This event is recommended for girls in grades K-5, but open to anyone interested in the conversation!

Mary and Sylvia will share stories and show photos, tools, and videos that tell their stories about becoming both engineers and leaders. They’ll tell girls how they can follow in their footsteps with the new Automotive Engineering three-badge series for Daisies, Brownies, and Juniors. The event will wrap up with a live Q&A for girls to ask Mary and Sylvia questions. Girls will leave with next steps to dive into automotive engineering!

Leading this amazing conversation is Robin Roberts, Good Morning America Co-Anchor.

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.
