Girl Scouts Mean Business

The Washington Business Journal reports that during a recent Women Who Mean Business alumnae gathering to welcome the 2010 class, the discussion turned to ways that girls could be introduced earlier to business events and conversations. The result is Girls Who Mean Business. This program brings a group of girls, including the honorees’ proteges and girls from the Girl Scout Council of the Nation’s Capital, to the awards presentation to get an early lesson in networking and professional relationships. The article states that perhaps someday these girls will return to the pages of the Washington Business Journal one day as Women Who Mean Business. I'd certainly like to think so.

Since we're on business, in 2008, Bill Taylor's Game Changer Blog at posted a video about management lessons learned from Girl Scouts. Take a look!

Do you know any Girl Scouts who mean business?
