Congratulations to the Cool Women Class of 2019! We honored these extraordinary individuals and introduced this year’s Emerging Leader Girl Scouts during a recent celebration at the Kona Kai Resort (photos).

One of the things that makes our organization the #BestPlace4Girls is the opportunity for them to gain wisdom and guidance from strong female role models. And that’s what our Cool Women program is all about. The Emerging Leaders—chosen for their outstanding potential and achievements—interacted with Cool Women and other mentors during a morning networking session.

KUSI News Anchor Sandra Maas emceed the event, which was co-chaired by Angie Lasagna of Mission Federal Credit Union and Joyce Glazer of San Diego Magazine, the media sponsor. We extend our thanks to all involved, including Champion STEM Supporter SDG&E, Leader Sponsor Southwest Airlines, and our Mentor Sponsors Blankinship & Foster, Dyna LLC, Mission Fed, and Wells Fargo.

By connecting these very Cool Women with the next generation of leaders, we’re building a foundation for the future!
