Event Details

Girl Scouts of the USA, the National Association of Broadcasters, the National Cable and Telecommunications Association, and The Creative Coalition recognize that media is ubiquitous in today’s society, and the steady increase in media consumption is having an impact on all our kids, including young girls.  All children benefit from experiencing healthy and positive messages about girls and women, and media literacy tools such as media literacy education, public education and career exploration can be invaluable to young people. 

At this invitation-only event, leaders in entertainment and media, youth, public policy, and education will come together with Academy Award-winning actress Geena Davis to further explore these issues and identify ways to help young people encounter and use media content that inspires, empowers, and engages.

Girl Scouts of the USA

Girl Scouts of the USA is the largest organization for girls in the world with nearly 2.8 million members – 2 million girl members and 800,000 adult members. For over a century, Girl Scouts has provided the premier leadership development experience for girls ages 5 to 17. Our mission is to build girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. In Girl Scouts, girls develop their leadership potential through activities in science and technology, business and economic literacy, and outdoor and environmental awareness that enable them to take action and make a difference in the world.

In 2016, Girl Scouts celebrates the 100th anniversary of the Gold Award, the highest honor a Girl Scout can earn. Since 1916, Girl Scouts have been making meaningful, sustainable change in their communities and around the world. Each year, the Gold Award is presented to girls in grades 9-12 who have planned and executed Take Action projects in response to a pressing need in their community. Fewer than 6 percent of eligible Girl Scouts earn the Gold Award annually. Comparable to the Eagle Scout rank, young women who receive the award have become community leaders, demonstrating their outstanding leadership and citizenship skills.
