Frequently Asked Questions about Women of Distinction


What is the Women of Distinction event? It’s a fundraiser for Girl Scouts in Cincinnati. This is not a girl program but an event that recognizes accomplished women and those who are community minded that financially support Girl Scouts.

During Women of Distinction, five honorees are recognized that exemplify the Girl Scout mission through ethical leadership and a commitment to making a difference in the lives of their fellow citizens through community service. In highlighting these women and girls, we hope to inspire all girls to achieve their own goals and dreams.
