About Gail Schoettler

Gail Schoettler, a tireless advocate for women, is the first woman to serve as both Colorado’s State Treasurer (1987-1995) and Lieutenant Governor (1995-1999).  As Lieutenant Governor, she negotiated the clean-up agreements for the Rocky Mountain Arsenal and Rocky Flats Nuclear Weapons Facility, saving billions of dollars.  Graduating with honors from Stanford University with a BA in economics, she earned MA and PhD degrees in African History from the University of California, Santa Barbara. She has 3 children and 2 grandchildren.  An avid hiker, she conquered her fear of heights to climb all 54 of Colorado’s 14’ers and Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania.  She is passionate about helping women run for political office and be successful in whatever they want to do.

About Judi Wagner

Wagner was one of the founders of the Women’s Bank of Denver, opening in 1978; and she hired the first woman President and CEO of a bank in Colorado.  Following this lead, other banks promoted women to management positions, where historically 80% of bank employees were women and less than 3% were in management. Wagner also elevated the status of women in politics by providing financial support and the strategic advice they needed to be successful.  She co-founded Electing Women to support women running for political office.  Six other states have adopted this program that raises funds for women running for Governor or U.S. Senate seats. In addition, Wagner co-founded the first center for women’s health research at a university in the US, The Center for Women’s Health Research, at the University of Colorado.

Gail and Judi have worked together for 45 years on many projects to help women. They started Electing Women Alliance in 2000 to raise money for pro-choice women running for high public office. Their partnership continues to elevate the status of women in Colorado and nationally
