By Nancy Wright, CEO, Girl Scouts of Greater Chicago and Northwest Indiana
We have so much to be grateful for this year, including each and every one of you for being a part of the Girl Scout community. We are also thankful for all of our girls, who continue to show the world that leading with empathy, truth, and respect matters.
As you gather with friends, family, and loved ones to take your seat at the Thanksgiving table to discuss important news and debate relevant issues, please remember all the tables that still exist today that do not invite enough women and girls to join.
This Thanksgiving, let’s practice gratitude and think about other tables we sit at in our lives. Can you pull out a seat for a girl or woman, so her voice can add value to a conversation and she can feel that she belongs?
Happy Thanksgiving! You give Girl Scouts one more reason to be grateful. Take a moment to hear the ways Girl Scouts give thanks.
