Famous Formers Luncheon

GSCCC will not be hosting the annual Famous Former luncheon due to circumstances created by the pandemic. Alternative plans are being made so check back soon!

Corporate G.I.R.L. Champion of the Year Award

This honor is awarded to a company that continues to offer to their employees and community exposure to the Girl Scouts’ four pillars: Outdoors, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math), Living Skills and Entrepreneurship. Like every Girl Scout, the Corporate Champion must be diverse in how it is making the world a better place.

The Corporate G.I.R.L. Champion of the Year honoree has made efforts:

  • to better the environment of the community around them
  • towards gender parity in STEM fields (does not need to be a STEM focused company to qualify)
  • to provide their employees learning, training and education opportunities to continue to hone employee’s skills
  • to recruit and retain women in leadership roles

We are proud to announce that the 2020 Corporate G.I.R.L. Champion of the Year is United Way of South Hampton Roads! Michele Anderson, President and CEO, will be accepting the award on behalf of the organization during the Famous Formers Luncheon.
