The 2nd Annual Inspiring Women of Iowa event celebrates inspiring and influential women in our community, with proceeds going to Girl Scouts of Greater Iowa. Our event honors three women, one in each of the following categories: Courage, Confidence and Character. Nominees can be anyone regardless of Girl Scout history – but they should be able to demonstrate that they have used courage, confidence or character in their daily lives. The nominees can be amazing artists, savvy business leaders or the unsung hero in our community. They could be your mentor, your sister or someone who has inspired you at some point in your life. We received over 80 nominations from the community for this year's event and are thrilled to celebrate our 12 finalists.
Proceeds from this event will benefit Girl Scouts of Greater Iowa.
