Welcome to our first Boulder event of 2018 for our Women & Impact Monthly Series!
This month we will have a special event focusing on getting more women on Boards. Joining a board, whether on a nonprofit, a private company, or a publicly traded company, is one strong and visible path for having significant impact in our society. Jo Lynne Whiting is the Board Chair of the Women's Leadership Foundation, a 501c.3 with the vision of women in equal partnership with men at the highest levels of leadership driving systemic change and greater success for their organizations and Colorado. Its flagship Board Bound Program has the goal of 3+ women on every Colorado Board. She will be joined by Barbara Bauer and another participant from the current cohort in the program.
There will be plenty of time for networking and learning about other opportunities from the broader network as well.
The series is hosted by Next Wave Ventures in partnership with the Women's Investor Network, the Impact Finance Center, and PeakChange. Join us for wine and hors d'oeuvres and mingle with other like minded women who are looking to create positive change with their time, money, and expertise. Each month we bring together a group of women interested in impact investing and philanthropy and have different speakers representing each kind of opportunity. In the past we've had presenters from the Next Wave Impact Fund, BSW Wealth Partners, Colorado Capital Management, and the Women's Investor Network (investing), as well as Bead for Life, Innovo Foundation, Beyond our Borders, and Friendship Bridget (philanthropy).
This will be held a private home and the address will be sent out a couple days before the event.
This women & impact series is sponsored by the Innovo Foundation & BSW Wealth Partners, so you may register for the event by donating just one dollar (the minimum eventbrite allows). However, donations of any size are always appreciated and will go towards our impact initiatives in Africa, Latin America, and Asia through the Next Wave Network and the Next Wave Foundation. Anything above $20 is tax deductible. Thank you for your support!
