Anna Maria Chávez, chief executive officer of Girl Scouts of the USA, will speak at a National Press Club Luncheon, May 30. Ms. Chávez will be in the nation’s capital to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Girl Scouting.
Chávez recently launched a new effort, ToGetHerThere, to promote equal representation of women in leadership positions in all sectors and levels of society — within one generation. In June, thousands of girls from all over the country will “Rock the Mall,” using the power of song and dance to celebrate the centennial, along with many now-famous women who grew up as Girl Scouts.
The Press Club luncheon will begin promptly at 12:30 p.m. Remarks will begin at 1:00 p.m., followed by a question-and-answer session, ending at 2 p.m. National Press Club Luncheons are webcast live on press.org. Follow the conversation on Twitter using the hashtag #NPCLunch, or on Facebook at (facebook.com/PressClubDC) and Twitter (@PressClubDC).
