To kick off Women’s History Month, the Dallas Mavericks announced a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Gift of Character partnership with Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas (GSNETX) that will power the regional organization’s DEI efforts in four key structural transformations – people, programs, processes and properties. The Mavs are investing $50,000 annually over a 3-year period, for a total of $150,000. Through the continuous support of the partnership, the region’s Girl Scouts will be given the tools to build the courage to stand-up, the confidence to speak-up and the character to take action against inequities in the world.
Last month, the Mavericks and GSNETX kicked off the partnership with the region’s first-ever Black History Month Patch powered by the Dallas Mavericks, which will continue all three years. Girl Scouts (K-12) across 32 counties were encouraged to learn, connect and take action on topics that related to the history, culture, and contributions of African Americans. Photos of Dallas area Girl Scouts earning their Black History Month Patches are available for editorial use here. In February, the Mavs also became the first year presenting sponsor of the GSNETX World Thinking Day Panel, where community peacemakers joined the Girl Scouts in a conversation about how girls can build peace from a personal, community and global perspective.
