For “pledging to mean something to today’s girls,” Girl Scouts of the USA CEO Anna Maria Chàvez has been included on Fast Company's list of The 100 Most Creative People in Business 2014.

“Girl Scouts now offers programs and badges in STEM-related fields such as robotics and video-game design, and Chàvez recently launched the program BFF (Be a Friend First) to help girls avoid traumatic conflict on the web or in school. In March, she teamed up with Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg and former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to launch the provocative “Ban Bossy” campaign, which encourages the development of young leaders,” wrote Fast Company’s Karen Valby.

Whether Girl Scouts are assembling a robotics team, planting new trees, collecting cans of food, or petitioning Congress, one thing is clear: when girls succeed, so does society. Learn how you can invest in a girl and the change the world!
