Columbia

Honoring women who lead communities and inspire girls.

First launched in 1993 in Columbia, SC, the Women of Distinction Event is a recognition and fundraising dinner that celebrates and honors outstanding women for their professional accomplishments, service to others, and impact on their community. Each year the Girl Scouts call upon the public to help identify women who exemplify excellence both through their professional achievements as well as their community volunteerism. Honorees are chosen based on four criteria: professional/community leadership, professional/community service, strong role model for girls and community visibility.

Our Women of Distinction continue our founder's century-old tradition of championing girls and demonstrating that women can succeed in any endeavor they choose. This year, we are thrilled to honor five women from the Columbia area.
