• Ban Bossy with Lean In and Girl Scouts

    We are thrilled to announce the partnership between Girl Scouts and LeanIn.org to introduce Ban Bossy. From the CEO of world’s largest company to the CEO of her family at home, we want girls to be whatever they dream without fear of being called “bossy”. Take the pledge to Ban Bossy online and share facts and figures on girls’ leadership; read Ban Bossy quotes from celebrities and leaders and download our leadership tips encouraging girls and women to lead throughout their lives. When the girls participate in the activity they can earn the "I'm a Leader" patch.  Join us! Encourage community members to join Girl Scouts and help shape our next generation's  leaders. We seek to empower girls to feel equally entitled to lead.

Ninth grader Sheryl Sandberg wasn’t shy about raising her voice. But the message she got from a faculty adviser didn’t praise that trait. “She’s too aggressive, too bossy,” the teacher said. “You don’t want to be bossy.” Luckily, Sandberg didn’t listen.
