Peer Groups

PEER GROUPS

The Colorado Women’s Chamber provides many opportunities for our members to network with each other for a purpose.  There’s nothing quite like the support we provide to each other as people in business who are passionate about supporting women.  Each of the below groups are designed to provide the honest and candid support we need as business owners or women in the workplace.  Best of all, these groups are included in the cost of membership and we encourage our members to participate and network with each other often.

Please contact Leah Caputo, Program Manager, with questions about joining any of these groups. 

Business Development Strategy Group

This group is designed for individuals in business development and/or sales roles in small to large organizations to discuss strategies, share sales tools, creativity, support, and business development. This group meets on the first Tuesday of every month, 2:00pm – 3:15pm.

CEO Forum

Large corporations and businesses are fortunate enough to have paid board positions to help these businesses experience success and navigate the ever-changing consumer landscape.  As a mid-size, growing business owner, we could also benefit from this type of support, but lack the resources and time to do so.  This group is comprised of business owners of $1M+ revenue, of non-competing industries that advise us much as a paid board member would.
This group meets on the second Monday of every month, 11:00am – 1:00pm.

Founders Forum

Brainstorm business ideas in a collaborative and supportive environment at our Founders Forum (formerly Business Owners Forum). This group was created to share business ideas, cultivate and educate business owners who want to achieve a higher level of success. Every other month, this group features a guest speaker who will focus on various business topics, while the months in-between are to check in with one another and highlight a group member and their business. Your business must be registered as an LLC or Inc. with the state of Colorado in order to participate.*
This group meets on the second Tuesday of each month from 9:00 -10:30 a.m.

Public Affairs Committee + Programming

Interested in advocacy and public affairs? Join the committee to help plan events to influence and inform about legislative issues and upcoming agenda items. This group schedules meetings ad hoc; contact Leah Caputo, Program Manager to catch the next one.

Women’s Advancement Group

Women advancing in their careers need a specific type of support.  How are companies going to recruit, retain and most importantly, GROW women into leadership and executive roles?  We do things differently than men and according to a recent study by McKinsey and Company, at the current rate of change, it’s going to take us over 100 years to catch up to where men are in the workplace. This group brings corporate, nonprofit, and mid-size businesswomen together to talk about how we create this necessary change and let companies know how to provide the best support and experience the success that inevitably comes from having women and men in leadership roles. This group meets on the 4th Monday of every month, 4:00 – 6:00pm.

Young Professionals Board + Programming

The Young Professionals group is developed in part with the chamber and the Young Professionals Board. The board is made up of young professionals, of all gender identities, representing small to large businesses, all industries, and sectors. This board is designed to support and create programming for CWCC Young Professionals as they navigate their careers and businesses. This is done through quarterly professional development and social opportunities. This is a unique community of young professionals working to develop the next generation of leaders. There is an application process that opens in November each year.
Terms go from December to November of the following year.
