Join Girl Scouts of Colorado in celebrating “20 years of Amazing Women” by honoring all the Women of Distinction of the Denver-metro region. This year’s Event Chairs are Maria Garcia Berry, Woman of Distinction ’97; Jean Galloway, Woman of Distinction ’97; and Arlene Hirschfeld, Woman of Distinction ’97.
Since the Women of Distinction program began in 1997, Girl Scouts of Colorado has honored 426 top women leaders in our community based on their remarkable achievements as business, community, and civic leaders. They are examples of corporate, civic, and philanthropic leadership and serve as role models for female leaders of tomorrow. The Women of Distinction program brings together a group of women dedicated to raising support for Girl Scout leadership programs.
To celebrate the 20th anniversary, seven incredible women leaders are being recognized for their significant and positive impact on their communities and for their dedication to making the world a better place. These Women of Distinction were voted by a group of their peers, and will receive an award in the following category at the 2017 Thin Mint Dinner:
