Young Women Leaders Making Their Mark in Northern California

In this video clip Val Swan and Patty Burke present a gift on behalf of Center for Creative Leadership to the Girl Scouts of Northern California at the Watermark Entrepreneur Conference.

On October 6th Patty Burke, Business Partner and Val Swan, Societal Advancement Project Director represented the new Center for Creative Leadership (CCL) Northern California team at Watermark’s Entrepreneur Conference 2016 in Mountain View, CA. CCL has an exciting developing partnership with Watermark, the largest women’s membership organization in the San Francisco Bay Area. Watermark’s mission is to increase the number of women in leadership positions by empowering their members to make their mark in their companies, careers and communities. More to come in November about another major project that CCL and Watermark will sponsor together.

Watermark and CCL’s missions are closely aligned and both organizations are committed to growing and developing the pipeline of young women leaders. To that end, a portion of the proceeds from this conference was donated to the Girl Scouts of Northern California, and Annie Cai, University of California-Berkeley student and Girl Scout alumna shared her Gold Award project at the event. On behalf of this emergent partnership, the CCL team presented Girl Scouts of Northern California with a gift as a special surprise. You will be hearing much more from our Northern California team as our work grows, so stay tuned!
