Empowered women empower Girl Scouts


What:
Thirty-five high-school aged Girl Scouts will spend Friday, June 23 through Sunday, June 25 at Webster University’s campus and across St. Louis learning tools to boost their confidence, personal brand and style.

The Empowerment Project, Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri’s newest older girl opportunity, invites girls to bond with adult female mentors who are trailblazers in a variety of St. Louis-area industries like STEM (science, technology, engineering and math), marketing, business, healthcare and finance.

This packed event provides the G.I.R.L.s (Go-getters, Innovators, Risk-takers, Leaders)TM an opportunity to not only connect with some exceptional female leaders and expand their professional network, but to participate in engaging activities. These experiences consist of mentor-led discussions like “Defining Your Brand,” and “Interpersonal Communications.” In addition to these networking, communication and branding seminars, representatives from ivivva by lululemon will work with the girls to discover their aspirations and help map them on vision boards. The weekend also includes an outing to the Paul Mitchell salon in the Central West End for a makeover and headshots, a trip to the Muny’s “The Little Mermaid” plus a professional styling lesson at Nordstrom.
