The Women's Council provided the idea of and assisted the momentum of the End The Gap initiative: increased numbers of women as business leaders. The Council has been disbanded as of spring 2018.
The Women’s Council, an outgrowth of the Leeds School of Business, is a critical asset in the school’s educational mission. Women's Council members speak in classrooms, mentor students and student teams, act as judges in business plan competitions, and reach out to potential students to tell them about the many resources available at the school and in the Boulder community. In doing so, these women not only contribute important information related to their areas of expertise and experience, but they also act as role models for our students (future business leaders), highlighting how effective and accomplished women leaders can be. They also participate in important leadership roles, and help us shape our overall strategy; Women's Council members serve on the Leeds School's Deming Center Board of Directors and head up efforts related to topics such as undergraduate engagement.
