Women Powering Change began when peace and security activist/philanthropist Cynda Collins Arsenault recognized the incredible wealth of skills and passion of women who were leading change for/by/about women right here in Colorado. At the same time, she was also hearing from many women who felt disconnected from their own community and were not aware of the work being done locally and internationally to address and solve the issues we all face, e.g. social, political, cultural, etc. She hosted a garden party in 2013 to showcase the work being done and connect these two groups. The response was overwhelming. Outgrowing her backyard, she hosted a second event one year later at Denver’s Redline Art Gallery, with over 500 people in attendance.
Recognizing the power and potential of this event, other women stepped up to create a volunteer-led committee to carry Women Powering Change forward. Women Powering Change has been sustained through the dedicated efforts of volunteers committed to furthering this vision. This annual event welcomes nearly 1,000 attendees. We are proud to host the ninth Women Powering Change on March 2, 2023.
Women Powering Change is also proud to be a founding partner of Week of Women Colorado with CBSColorado!
