2023 Badass Women of Arvada

April 02, 2023

Women’s History Month is celebrated annually in March to highlight women’s achievements and promote gender equality across the globe. The month corresponds with International Women’s Day on March 8, a day of education, empowerment, and action. This year’s IWD theme is #EmbraceEquity.

In honor of Women’s History Month, the Arvada Chamber of Commerce is leading a celebration of Arvada women leaders all month long. We will celebrate Badass Women of Arvada in business, non-profits, and our community on this page and offer resources and engagement opportunities. This year’s celebration includes weekly spotlights for construction, hospitality, and healthcare professionals, as well as an exclusive networking event for those recognized.
