Inspiration is the ‘calling card’ of CWHF –

Two years ago, during the CWHF annual strategic planning offsite, it was evident that in order to fully realize our mission, the organization needed to increase awareness throughout Colorado, tell the stories of our amazing inductees, and increase annual donations. As a Volunteer Board, we determined the best way to accomplish this would be through specific targeted events that allow us to celebrate and honor the wonderful women of the Hall in ways that inspire audiences to Aspire Higher to realize their dreams.

Last year, we held our inaugural “Great Colorado Women Stories” event before a capacity crowd, leaving our guests wanting to learn more about our Inductees. This event also produced much-needed donations and “planted the seed” for future events. Our fall “Women in STEM” event sold out weeks in advance and ignited a fire in Denver women/men to learn more about us.

Inspiration is the ‘calling card’ of CWHF. Each time, when our inductees tell their stories, inspiration is the takeaway that lasts long after our events are over. To continue to inspire all our audiences, we will repeat these two events in Denver and continue to fuel the energy catalyzed through our stories of grit & grace, challenges and accomplishments.

This year, as part of the Hall’s 35th anniversary celebration, the “Great Colorado Women Stories” event will expand across Colorado featuring our founder, M.L. Hanson who will share her vision and her “why” for creating CWHF” along with Inductees sharing their stories and engaging our audiences.

Four Locations in 2020/2021
