We are working to change the world by moving more girls into amazing STEM and STEAM careers, and joining us today is someone who shares that mission: Tammy Wharton, the president and CEO of Girl Scouts of Ohio Heartland, which serves over 20,000 girls in 30 Ohio counties.
Most people are familiar with Girl Scouts in a general sense, but you may not realize the wide-spread impact they can have. They are constantly working with girls to develop courage, confidence, and character — and that confidence is so key to pursuing fields that women haven’t been encouraged to try in the past.

Staying relevant to girls in a changing world
