In its second year, this critical event will highlight what our community is doing to create a pipeline of young women into non-traditional careers. Participants from the business community will hear from government, non-profit and for-profit business leaders; all addressing what is being done and what still needs to be done to change the perceived career options for women. We will also profile some change-making, dynamic female students entering both non-traditional fields and non-traditional roles for women. We will also be awarding scholarships to some of these students to help them make the next step in their education and careers.
We are partnering with CWCC Young Professionals on this event to support the success of the next generation of female leaders.
Keynote Speaker: Susan Frew, CEO of Sunshine Plumbing and Heating

Since the program’s inception, more than 7,000 awards have been presented in over 500 communities in eight countries.

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.
In the 2nd Annual State of Women in Business, you can hear first-hand on 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 gender equality and “Issue Deep Dives” from prominent female leaders.
