The Colorado Women’s Chamber of Commerce’s 3rd Annual State of Women in Business Luncheon on September 25th is just around the corner! We will be diving deep into the data of women in business with prominent leaders in the community who will speak on big-picture issues.
As women in business, we have come so far; but as this event recognizes there is still work to be done. Women still hold only 17% of CEO positions and women-owned businesses still face growth hurdles.
Who are the influential and impactful organizations in the community driving to change the staggering statistics for women in business? Here’s a glimpse into what our strongest supporters and sponsors are doing to move the need for women in the workplace.
Our presenting sponsor, HealthONE is proud to support the Colorado Women’s Chamber of Commerce and the State of Women in Business. HealthONE’s healthcare system includes eight hospitals and seven CareNow Urgent Care centers across the metro area.
We connected with HealthONE to dig a little deeper into their brand and their commitment to the community.
- CWCC: Your newest marketing campaign #StrongestPeopleWeKnow echos some of the sentiments we have on the strength of women in business. Tell us a little more about it.
HealthONE: Women are leaders in both their personal and professional lives. They are the strongest people we know. Being the leader of the household is a full-time job in itself.
