State of Women in Business Luncheon

Thursday, September 13, 2018 | 11:00 am – 1:00 pm | Grand Hyatt, Denver

As women in business, especially in Colorado, we have come so far.  But as statistics continue to show, we still have a way to go.  We still hold only 17% of CEO roles and women-owned businesses in Colorado aren’t growing.  86% of them have only 1 employee and studies show that less than 1% of them have less than 1million in revenue.

 

Join us for a lively presentation and discussion to learn why these statistics continue to exist and what we can do to change them.  The event promises to be an engaging afternoon with a keynote speech on economic equality as well as “Ted Talk” style discussions on women and leadership growth, entrepreneurship and risk and unconscious bias.
