Leadership Program

We need more women in the highest levels of leadership.

As leaders, women are struggling to get to the very top.

  • Only 14% of CEOs in large organizations are held by women
  • Colorado is nearly last in the nation for the number of women on publicly traded boards.
  • Women make up 24% of Colorado company boards – which has risen over the past decade – but we want to see this number grow!

The CWCC is working to change these statistics and we need more dynamic leaders like you. Support your talented emerging leaders with access to the 2022-2023 CWCC Women of Influence and Impact Leadership program.

The CWCC is working to change these statistics… And we need leaders like you to get involved. 

Join the Colorado Women’s Chamber of Commerce’s Women of Influence & Impact, a leadership program designed specifically to advance women in business. This program is designed to help emerging leaders to lead and influence in their community, develop important skills to support advancement, and expand their community.

This program has three key components to it: 

Curriculum: Gain key leadership skills that women need in order to advance from experts and industry leaders, such as: negotiation, board service, strategic alignment, and leading with authenticity and vulnerability.
