Sylvia Acevedo began her career in systems engineering at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Her early career accomplishments led to leadership roles at some of the world’s most respected corporations, including IBM, Apple, Autodesk, and Dell. She is a tireless advocate for early childhood education and science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) opportunities, which led to her founding of CommuniCard, Inc, a company that provides education, technology and healthcare to underserved markets. She later sold the company to pursue a career that combined her experience, interests, and greatest hopes for the future: CEO of Girl Scouts of the USA. Her bold vision and relentless energy underscored the Girl Scouts’ commitment to preparing girls for success if life and work, employing cutting-edge, research-backed, and girl-centered programming to expand the country’s workforce pipeline with innovators, risk-takers, and leaders.
