The 1st quarterly #SDGSeriesCO took place on November 5th, 2018 at the Posner Center and focused on SDG 5: Gender Equality and Women Empowerment. Our panelists discussed persistent gender-based issues and suggested ways WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
A big thank you to Colleen LaFontaine (@WFColorado, #WFCO), Candi CdeBaca (@ProjectVOYCE), Lizelle Van Vuuren (@womenwhostartup), and to our moderator, Alexis Newton (@UNADenver).
“The event was great and very empowering! The panelists were very inspirational women who made me want to do much more for this important issue of gender equality.”

“Honored to be in the same room as these powerhouse women and humbled to be invited as a woman entrepreneur. Hearing from these badass speakers on how we can advocate for gender equality through education, legislation, and supporting each other was inspiring.”
