Leadership Program


We need more women in the highest levels of leadership.

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

  • Only 32% of CEOs are women

  • Only 8.8% of Fortune 500 CEOs are Women

  • Since 2000, there have been 151 women and people of color appointed CEOs to Fortune 500 companies

  • 2021 it was the first time in history that two black women were appointed CEO of Fortune 500 companies

  • As of March 2022, only 6 CEO's in the S&P 500 were women of color and only 2 identified as LGBTQ

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.

Join the Colorado Women's Chamber of Commerce's Women of Influence & Impact

A leadership program designed specifically to advance women, and women of color, in their careers.
This program is designed to help emerging leaders to lead and influence their community, develop skills to support advancement, and expand their understanding of the current business architecture impacting women in work.

This program focuses on four areas impacting women most in work:

  1. Equity
  2. Allyship
  3. Cultural Norms
  4. Advancement and Retention

This program will also allow leaders to:

  • Increase their understanding of issues that impact today's leaders.

  • Build a strong network of powerful women in the community.

  • Dive deep into topics that will develop your leadership skills.

  • Develop hard skills that women need to move into leadership roles.

  • Learn about growing industries from C-suite female leaders in those industries.

  • Become more confident with communication, management skills, understanding of Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion (DEI)

  • Gain a holistic understanding of our local workforce and industries.
