We recognize the importance of women being employed in careers traditionally dominated by men to not only increase their earning potential but to also represent diverse ideas, experiences and perspectives.
Please join us as we celebrate the more than 2.5 million women and girls who live in Colorado – and comprise half its population and nearly half its workforce – who are integral to the state’s economic status and overall well-being.*
When women and girls thrive, whole communities prosper around the world.
