The 2019 Leading Women of Distinction Honorees listed below emulate the Girl Scout G.I.R.L. spirit of Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker and Leader throughout their careers and serve as inspiring examples for the young girls in our communities. This year’s honorees are:

- Kathleen Malin, VP of Technology & Operations Management, Rhode Island Foundation

GSSNE CEO Pam Hyland, stated, “The Girl Scout Movement started with the voice of our founder Juliette Gordon Low. Juliette was driven by the belief that girls needed a special all-girl environment where they could discover their own voice, and use it to strengthen their communities. Our 2019 Leading Women of Distinction honorees emulate the importance of this legacy and they are strong, female role models who utilize their leadership skills to make our community a better place.”
Since 2015, the GSSNE Leading Women of Distinction Honorees have been a direct reflection of what Girl Scouting stands for—they are both impressive and inspiring. GSSNE hopes that through positive, girl-led, girl-centric experiences and exposure to strong, female role models, all girls are able to thrive in the direction of their ambitions and lead lives full of courage, confidence, and character.
