Top Female Leaders Come Together to Impact Girls in Speed Networking Program

Written By Editor on 11/18/16 | 11/18/16

 On November 19, some of the Capital Region’s top female leaders will come together for Dare to Climb, a special mentoring event for girls, sponsored by the Girl Scouts of Northeastern New York (GSNENY). The Great Escape Lodge will host this full-day enrichment program, which will feature a speed networking workshop. Among the mentors participating are Denise Gonick, CEO of MVP Health Care, Assemblywoman Carrie Woerner, and Dianne Shugrue, CEO of Glens Falls Hospital.

Open to both Girl Scout members and non-members, the Dare to Climb program gives girls the opportunity to ask questions and hear the experiences and advice of some of the region’s most successful women in healthcare, the arts, and business.

“Girls need to see women succeeding at the type of career they want to do,” said, Mary Buszuwski, CEO of Girl Scouts of Northeastern New York. “They need it for inspiration, leadership, paths to follow, and to help them believe that they can succeed.”

In the morning, Liska Wilson; CEO of She’s a Boss, will lead an introductory exercise to get girls more comfortable with networking. Afternoon workshops on college application prep and financial literacy will be led by Linehan College Counseling, Godfrey Financial Associates, The Financially Savvy Graduate, and College Advisor of New York.

Dare to Climb is a featured program of GSNENY’s Young Women’s Leadership Initiative, offering various hands-on leadership programs to female high school students throughout northeastern New York.
