Women of Denver is a one of a kind leadership program that gives its members the opportunity to practice leadership as workshop facilitators. With an easy to replicate strategy, facilitators create activities and engage event guests in a knowledge-filled hour of learning and networking. The result is longer lasting and more fulfilling relationships with other women in leadership.
What's special about this group is that it creates a real platform for leaders to build their resumes. By incorporating multimedia features such as video live-streaming and social media, members have a real avenue to build their professional brand as a thought leader in their industry and an authority in their field.
Each meeting offers an opportunity to learn from a speaker, network with others and practice leadership in various ways. The community is welcoming, open, authentic, and powerful. Event topics are varied and are geared toward helping women master hard and soft skills for success.
To take a peek into a Women of Denver event watch this video documentary.
"It's like Toastmasters for workshop speakers in some ways," said Krystal Covington, the group's founder. “The recipe is all laid out, and speakers fill in the blanks with their content, activities and discussions.”
Other opportunities available for members include creating online courses, video blogs, and regular opportunities to be featured on daily “WOD TV” interviews.
There are nearly 600 members currently on the Women of Denver Meetup group, which was started in January of this year. “We’re hoping to triple that by the end of the year,” said Covington. “I anticipate finishing 2015 with 1,800 members.”
