From Lydia Dishman's Women Who Lead By Example article:

Girl Scout's current CEO Ana Maria Chavez advocates leading by example. "Girl Scouts was founded 100 years ago. We need to update the organization and our model, or else we're going to lose people."

From using mobile payment technology to boost sales of those cookies (which totaled $700 million last year) to holding virtual troop meetings via web-conferencing, the organization is furthering its mission to train young girls to be entrepreneurs, managers, and leaders.

The rest of the article is worth reading for career advice from women leaders.

You don't see the Boy Scouts making this kind of money.
