REDWOOD CITY, CA (May 2, 2017) — Equilar is proud to announce its pledge to Girl Scouts of the USA as part of its annual Top 25 Survey campaign that gives back to communities nationwide. Equilar has pledged to donate $25 to the Girl Scouts of the USA for each 2017 Top 25 Survey submission received from February 21 through May 31.
“It's never too early to start building the pipeline of future women business leaders, and partnering with the Girl Scouts of America aligns with our commitment to raising awareness on diversity in the workplace,” said David Chun, Founder and CEO of Equilar. “Giving back to unify our communities is a core value at Equilar, and we’d like to thank our survey participants for joining us in supporting this great cause.”
“Girl Scouts is truly honored to have been selected by Equilar and its survey participants to be the recipient of this generous donation,” said Sylvia Acevedo, interim CEO of Girl Scouts of the USA. “At Girl Scouts, we believe in the power of every G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader) to change the world. This contribution will go towards our continuing efforts to develop and support vital leadership programs that allow girls to develop their full potential.
Equilar support of Girl Scouts will enable the leadership organization to continue providing impactful, transformative, girl-led programming that combines STEM, the outdoors, life skills, entrepreneurship and civic engagement. Studies have consistently shown that one of the most effective ways to boost a nation’s economic output, enhance productivity, and improve the overall vibrancy of society is to invest in the leadership capabilities of girls and women. Throughout the last century, the Girl Scout experience has been a prominent way by which girls have forged their unique leadership paths, with Girl Scout alumnae excelling as astronauts and business owners, stay-at-home moms and politicians, world-renowned actresses and athletes, and beyond.
