”It’s easy to lose sight of the fact that women still have a long way to go in the workplace — especially when we’ve come so far. But we still need change; 86 percent of woman-owned businesses in Colorado have only one employee. Women hold only 14 percent of CEO seats, and Colorado is nearly last in the nation for number of women on publicly traded boards of directors.” 

The CWCC is working diligently to promote much-needed change in the workplace. Blessman was brought on in early 2017 to reposition the CWCC in partnership with its strong and passionate membership base.
