Each year, at our New York Luncheon – Celebrating Women of Achievement, we are thrilled to honor industry leaders who, through their extraordinary work and example, are helping to inspire girls to envision futures they had not thought possible. Our Honorees will share the stage with our 2014 Girls Inc. National Scholars, who, through their participation in Girls Inc. programming, have overcome some of life’s biggest challenges to defy stereotypes, discover their passions, and achieve their dreams.
