View video highlights from the 2013 Los Angeles Celebration Luncheon

On November 20, 2013, we held our 18th Girls Inc. Los Angeles Celebration Luncheon at the Beverly Hills Hotel. We were thrilled to honor remarkable women in the entertainment industry who, through their extraordinary work and example, are continuing to inspire girls to take risks, discover their passions, and achieve their dreams. Our Honorees shared the stage with some of our 2013 Girls Inc. National Scholars, who, through their participation in Girls Inc. programs, have overcome some of life’s biggest challenges to become high achieving leaders in their communities.
