Girl Scouts of North East Ohio established the Women of Distinction award to honor women who go above and beyond to make our communities better places to live, work, and raise a family.
Scholarships raised at the Women of Distinction celebration will provide our future leaders with supplemental funding to pursue a degree in higher education.
The 15 women honored here are those whose achievements represent the fulfillment of the Girl ScoutPromise and Law. They are selected for their remarkable achievements as business, community, andcivic leaders dedicated to supporting opportunities for women and girls. In the past, many of them were Girl Scouts as children, volunteers, or support the organization because they believe in its mission of building girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. Affiliation with Girl Scouts is not a requirement. However, being a role model for girls IS required. See below for specific criteria.
Calfee, Halter & Griswold LLP was selected to receive the 2014 Advancing Women Award for its proven commitment to advancing women in the workplace through its “Navigating Calfee” mentoring program, “Women of Calfee” affinity group, “Lifestyle Resources” program, and for its work-study programs that encourage high school students to consider law as a profession. The law firm is actively engaged in the community and supports local non-profits through pro bono work and volunteerism.
The 15 women selected for the Women of Distinction Award embody all that we promise to live by as Girl Scouts: to be honest and fair, considerate and caring, courageous and strong, and committed to making the world a better place. Their talents are broad and their impact far-reaching, whether they work directly with girls or support the Girl Scout Mission in other meaningful ways.
These are the women who will be honored this year:
