Top 25 Most Powerful Women Nominations

The Colorado Women’s Chamber of Commerce’s 9th annual Top 25 Most Powerful Women event seeks to profile powerful and impactful women in our Colorado community. This award aims to inspire other businesswomen in the community by highlighting 25 women who live a well-balanced life by charting new or innovative career paths, have a passion for civic engagement and exhibit perseverance in their company, their community, and their family.

Sponsorships are available. Don’t miss this great opportunity to get in front of over 750 people in the business community! Interested in sponsoring? Call us 303.458.0220.

Please note: We are moving this event to Fall 2021. Nominations will open Spring 2021. Please follow us on social @COWomensChamber to stay updated.


Top 25 most powerful women nominees must meet each of the following criteria: 

1. Passionate about the success and promotion of women in business.

Nominees must help promote women in the workplace and their growth in the business community.

2. Civic Engagement in the community.

Your nominee must have a track record of serving women and children in our Colorado community. Her work should include helping disadvantaged or under-served women become self-sufficient and/or more successful in the workforce or in our community.

3. Visionary Leader with a track record of success.

She’s always focused on the next step. Research shows that women don’t often reach for top roles or promotions. Only 17% of CEO roles are held by women. Women-owned businesses aren’t growing at the same rate as men’s.

4. Exhibits Perseverance.

Change doesn’t come easily and this is especially true when it comes to the success of women in the workforce. Some of our best female leaders did not take “no” for an answer.
