Girl Scouts of Connecticut host inaugural “Legacy of Leadership Luncheon” in Darien

Organization honors Kathleen Silard, president and CEO, Stamford Health and Racquel Oden, managing director, Northeast Division for JPMorgan Chase for building the next generation of women leaders


DARIEN, CONNECTICUT (June 7, 2019)—  Paving the way for the next generation of women leaders was the topic of conversation at Girl Scouts of Connecticut’s Legacy of Leadership Luncheon. The statewide organization recently held its inaugural luncheon on June 5 at the Woodway Country Club in Darien.

The fundraising event included a silent auction, lunch, and program. Guests also had the opportunity to meet local Gold Award Girl Scouts and learn about their projects.  The event’s Innovator Sponsor was Stamford Health, and the organization was joined by a host of other CT-based corporate sponsors.

Girl Scouts of Connecticut honored President and CEO of Stamford Health, Kathleen Silard, and Managing Director of the Northeast Division for JPMorgan Chase, Racquel Oden, with the 2019 Legacy of Leadership Award. Both women are leaving a legacy and inspiring other women and girls in their career fields. The organization also honored Founder and Chief Movement Officer at the Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement, Scarlett Lewis, with the Courage, Confidence, and Character Award, for the courageous and compassionate impact that she is leaving in her community and on a global scale.

“What an incredible day to join together to celebrate women and girls who are making a difference,” said Mary Barneby, CEO, Girl Scouts of Connecticut. “The three honorees are true examples of what Girl Scouts is all about—leading with compassion and making sustainable change in our communities. I’d like to thank all who attended the event and helped support another generation of female leaders.”
