The Resilience Factor: A Key to Leadership in African American and Hispanic Girls (2011) is a discussion paper that was generated from national leadership research conducted by the Girl Scout Research Institute (GSRI). Change It Up! What Girls Say About Redefining Leadership (2008), a nationwide study that explored how youth ages 8 to 17 define, experience, and aspire to leadership. The Resilience Factor: A Key to Leadership in African American and Hispanic Girls further explores the concept of resilience as a framework based on recent literature focused on African American and Hispanic girls.
