About Us

ABOUT

Colorado Women’s Chamber of Commerce (CWCC) is a member-based non-profit 501(C) 6 organization. Our mission is to provide women opportunities that better our community and economy, promote equity in the workplace, and help women grow their businesses and their careers. It is our vision to make Colorado the #1 state for women in business!

 

HISTORY

CWCC was founded in 1988 by a group of nine women to give women a voice in business, support women in business and provide resources to help them succeed. Women own 10.6 million businesses in the United States and employ 19.1 million workers – that’s one in every seven employees. Women-owned businesses account for $2.5 trillion in sales. Colorado is ranked first in the country for economic success, and second in the country for most entrepreneurial.
