During the livestream, Barra and Acevedo will show photos and videos and share other resources that tell their stories of becoming successful engineers and leaders in traditionally male-dominated fields.

They’ll also tell girls how they can follow in their footsteps by earning the new Automotive Engineering three-badge series for Daisies (grades K-1), Brownies (grades 2-3) and Juniors (grades 4-5), made possible through support from GM.
