Top LA Execs Gather for Girls, Nov. 7



Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles’ ToGetHerThere Luncheon celebrates female leaders of today & tomorrow 

WHAT:   A network of more than 600 of LA’s most influential executives and key business leaders will gather at the 2016 ToGetHerThere Luncheon in support of Greater LA girls. Hosted by Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles (GSGLA), the event applauds strides made in supporting girls and women, while examining the many obstacles today’s girls still face. GSGLA will celebrate the leadership of Girl Scout alumna and 2016 ToGetHerThere Champion Karen Ideno, vice president of product and marketing for Toyota Financial Services, as well as honor Girl Scouts’ 100 Emerging Leaders — exemplary Girl Scouts who are poised to become tomorrow’s decision makers.  Lise Luttgens, CEO, GSGLA, will speak on the state of girls and women, showcasing how Girl Scouts is leading the way in transforming the leadership landscape in Greater Los Angeles and beyond.
