CWWK provides opportunities for networking and mentoring and support for director and above women in High-Tech roles and companies in the Denver Metro area.
In addition, we have a passion around increasing the number of girls in engineering and science. Our events are cool, low maintenance, fun, and include an abundance of time for networking.
CWWK is Small with High Impact
We are always keeping an eye out for the next Cool Woman, but never want to become so large that we lose the intimacy and trust we build in our group and with our community. That means we work to keep our membership in the 50 – 100 range for any given chapter.
So how will you know a Cool Woman when you meet her? The following criteria are designed to help you.
It can be difficult to determine “nice” from “cool”, so we’ve put the following together to help you identify new members:
Paying it Forward
In addition, our members have a passion around increasing the number of girls in engineering and science and encourage their young female colleagues to grow in their IT and technology business careers. And we find the time to give back – to other members, to our community, and to the next generation of women. Our members play the roles of mentors, financial contributors, board members and peer advisors. They sponsor events, manage programs and volunteer as scholarship reviewers or content creators. Each woman brings her unique skills and passion to the table as a generous leader.
CWWK has it's own scholarship to give back to women in tech. We collect donations from our members to support future women in tech via scholarships to be used for traditional education, certifications, conferences, etc. Please help us support the next generations of coolest women by visiting coolestwomen.org/donate.
To nominate a new cool woman, a current member must solicit support from ate least one other existing cool woman member. Inviting prospective candidates to a meeting as a guest is great way to go – as this is a two-way consideration process. Candidate nominations are reviewed by the CWWK Membership committee made of members from the Board of Directors and the general membership population.
Happy Hour guests must be member eligible and may attend one meeting to make sure the group is a good fit for them. If they attend a virtual meeting, we encourage at least or two one-on-one phone discussions between the nominee and the Membership Committee members.
Extending an Invitation to New Members
Please try not to set any expectations about membership with guests or prospective members, as not all candidates are selected. The most common reasons someone is not selected include:
