Davia Temin Named One of "30 Outstanding Women"

Davia Temin, First Vice President of the Girl Scout National Board of Directors, has been named one of "30 Outstanding Women" advancing women and girls' leadership by the National Council for Research on Women.

Ms. Temin is among the "30 Outstanding Women" being celebrated by the National Council for Research on Women for their efforts in advancing women's issues, promoting women's leadership and changing the way women and girls are viewed globally. Nominated by their peers for their achievements, the honorees will be recognized at this year's Making a Difference for Women Awards Dinner on March 6th in New York City, where the NCRW will also be commemorating its 30th anniversary.

"Helping girls and women realize their leadership potential is why I became so heavily involved in organizations such as Girls Scouts of the USA and the White House Project. I wanted to help develop the pipeline of female leadership in this country, from Girl Scout Daisies and Brownies all the way up to the U.S. Presidency," she says. "And, making a difference in the U.S. also has an impact globally, especially in countries where women's leadership is more challenged by societal expectations."
