ATLANTA (Jan. 3, 2014) – Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta (GSGATL), the most recognized leadership organization for young women in Georgia, today announced the appointment of Amy Dosik as Chief Executive Officer.
Dosik’s twenty years of non-profit experience include serving as a principal at Ernst & Young, an attorney with international law firms and as a founding board member of It’s the Journey, the organization responsible for operating the Atlanta 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer.
“Amy Dosik has the vision and experience needed to continue the great work our organization is delivering to our community,” said GSGATL Board Chair, Myra Bierria. “Her leadership is critical to ensure that Girl Scouts continues to address the evolving needs of young women in the Atlanta metro area.”
Dosik assumes the CEO position at a key time for the organization, as it works to strengthen its role in raising awareness around the existing community and social barriers that prevent young girls from developing critical leadership skills.
“As a former Girl Scout, I am honored and humbled to join the leadership of the largest girl-serving organization in the world,” said Dosik. “Growing-up, I was fortunate to have many adults who helped to make my world bigger by exposing me to new challenges, new experiences and new places. Today, I am privileged to have the opportunity to help cultivate, nurture and build the next century of female leaders.”
Dosik plans to use her knowledge and commitment to youth development to help girls build courage, confidence, and character and lead them to a successful path. In her new role as CEO, she is responsible for advancing the Girl Scout mission through membership retention and growth, philanthropic support and program innovation.
