SUBMITTED BY COLORADO WOMEN’S CHAMBER OF COMMERCE
Wrapping up it’s 8th year recognizing over 200 women, Colorado Women’s Chamber of Commerce’s Top 25 Most Powerful Women Gala celebrates and recognizes women who operate at the highest level of business performance and community leadership. This event recognizes the professional achievements and contributions to the Denver community by these women. Men and women from the community came out to support these 25 women, including over 40 alumni. Nominations for 2021 will be open in the fall of 2020. The women are chosen by a selection committee that includes some of our past Top 25 honorees and other leaders here in the community. Top 25 most powerful women nominees must meet each of the following criteria:
Passionate about the success and promotion of women in business. Nominees have women in the community that attribute their success to this individual. Ensuring that women have the tools they need to grow their business, grow their career and have the confidence to take on career challenges is a priority for them.
Civic Engagement in the community. Nominees must have a track record of serving women and children in the community. Their work must be focused on helping disadvantaged women become self-sufficient and/or successful in the workforce.
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. Nominees must have a track-record of taking on difficult projects or new opportunities.
Exhibit 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 and did whatever it took to be a trailblazer in their company, their business or the community.
