WOMEN'S COMMISSION

 

The Denver Women’s Commission promotes the social, economic and political quality of life in Denver by assisting women in the attainment of equality and full opportunity by:

  • Advocating for women
  • Empowering women through coalition building, disseminating information and sharing community resources
  • Monitoring and recommending legislation and proposed policy changes affecting women

Our Commissioners are appointed by the Mayor and confirmed by City Council.  They serve 2 year terms. Commissioners must live or work in the City and County of Denver.


Commission Meetings

The Denver Women's Commission meets the first Thursday of each month, from 6:00p.m. - 8:00 p.m. (unless otherwise noted). Meetings are open to the public. We recommend confirming the date and place prior to the meeting. 
*Meeting locations rotate monthly to various community organizations. Please see the Monthly Committee Meeting Schedule for locations.
