Girl Scouts of Central Texas (GSCTX) stands in solidarity with the women and men working to uphold Austin’s reputation of being a city that embraces diversity. However, the statements made in the March 27th city council training session highlights the steps yet to be taken toward equality.
This is why, after 103 years, the work being done at GSCTX, and at councils across the country, remains relevant. Girl Scouts works towards the day where female leadership is celebrated, not questioned. When women in leadership roles are questioned, as if they don’t belong, it is crucial to model to young women the value of recognizing their strengths, passions and talents. GSCTX believes in the power of girls and is committed to building girls of courage, confidence and character, whether it be in the classroom, at home, or on a city council.
GSCTX looks forward to continuing our legacy of celebrating girls and encouraging their journey in becoming tomorrow’s leaders.
