The Glorified Gals of 2018
Colorado's lady leaders honored for hustle and get 'er done attitude
In an ever-evolving business landscape, the fearless lady leaders are navigating, strategizing, building and motivating in Colorado and beyond. These women in business filled the room at The Studios at Overland Crossing, Thursday, June 21 for ColoradoBiz magazine's annual Top Women in Business celebration.
From startup founders to CEOs, owners and mentors, as they blaze trails, face transformational change and tackle challenges, these females are also carving out opportunities for the next generation to follow in their footsteps.
Unveiled at the evening event were the 2018 Top 100 Woman-Owned Companies.
"The Top Women in Business event has grown in size with many successful women coming together, networking and making meaningful connections," says ColoradoBiz publisher Sylvia Harmon. "These Women to Watch, Top 100 Women business owners and Women in Wealth, to name a few, are some of the most dynamic in the state. We enjoy celebrating their success each year and look forward to continued collaboration this year."
CBS4 Meteoroligst Lauren Whitney served as emcee for the evening, announcing the three winners of the night:
TOP PRODUCER AWARD (highest revenue per employee)
BOOMING BIZ AWARD (greatest revenue growth since 2017)
RISING STAR AWARD (youngest company with the highest revenue)
Greeting guests at the entryway, Dress for Success, a local nonprofit, collected bags and donations to support women's achievement. Since 1997, the organization has worked to empower women, helping them achieve independence and gain confidence by outfitting them to thrive.
Additional program sponsors included BKD CPAs & Advisors, ACG Denver, Denver Center for the Performing Arts, YellowDog Printing & Graphics, Footers Catering, the Colorado Women's Chamber of Commerce, Award & Sign, Women of Denver and Two Parts.
