Women’s Leadership Network Inspires in Denver

On Thursday, October 3, the Southwest Chapter hosted its Women’s Leadership Network Breakfast in Denver. Over 50 people came to hear Janice Sinden, CEO & President of the Denver Center for Performing Arts, speak on leadership, challenges and change. As the first female CEO & President of the DCPA, Ms. Sinden is no stranger to a fast-paced, politically-charged work environment. She spoke on the diversity of her career path and how it allowed her to pursue her personal passions, broadened her cultural experiences, and allowed her to give back to her community through her interest in politics.

If you’re in the area, visit the Denver Center for Performing Arts website for tickets to their upcoming performances.

Thank you to the Chapter and to the PLUS Foundation for making this event possible! Enjoy the photos and visit the PLUS Foundation website for more information on Foundation activities and how you can get involved.
