CELEBRATING EXTRAORDINARY WOMEN
The Hall is dedicated to recognizing and preserving the history of the accomplishments of past and present Colorado women. Both historical and contemporary women have shared foresight, vision, and the power of accomplishment but lacked a forum for recognition. The Hall is dedicated to ensuring that their splendid achievements will not be forgotten through an induction ceremony held every two years as well as events including our inductees held in Denver and around the state.
The CWHF mission is to inspire by celebrating and sharing the enduring contributions of Colorado’s distinctive women. To achieve this, the Hall educates the people of Colorado about the stories of the women who shaped our state and the nation’s history with courage, leadership, intelligence, compassion, and creativity. Their talents, skills, struggles, and contributions form a legacy that the Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame is dedicated to protecting. The women inducted into the Hall of Fame come from diverse backgrounds such as:
- Minority Leaders
- Lawyers and more
Any woman who is presently connected or had a past connection to Colorado and has made a major impact on the lives of others as well as helped to elevate the status of women and girls in our state, our nation, and, some, around the world, is eligible for nomination. Read more about our inductees and learn how you can nominate an extraordinary woman to the Hall.
The Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame is a volunteer operated 501(c)(3) Denver nonprofit organization founded in 1985.
The daily operations of the Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame are carried out by a volunteer Board of Directors. The Hall also has an Advisory Board comprised of notable citizens from across the state who support our mission and goals. We rely on volunteers to help with the many projects, programs, and events planned by the Board of Directors. All share the same goal of educating society about the contributions of Colorado’s remarkable women and ensuring their legacy for future generations.
