Each year, at our annual Luncheons, Girls Inc. recognizes remarkable leaders across an array of companies, industries, and sectors. Our honorees are shining examples of success and leadership. Their hard work and dedication have helped build a brighter future for girls and inspire them to discover their own strong, smart, and bold paths. The awards are proudly presented by our Girls Inc. National Scholars who have been selected for also demonstrating a commitment to achieving excellence. They have overcome extraordinary obstacles and challenges, and often times risen above stereotypes, to become role models for their peers, examples of success for their communities, and the leaders of tomorrow.
