National Board

The Girl Scout National Board of Directors comprises 29 men and women, with expertise in fields ranging from financial services to publishing. The National Board hails from the Latino, African American, Asian American, Native American, and Caucasian communities—reflecting Girl Scouting's strong commitment to diversity and inclusion.
