My old (uh, meaning longtime, not age) friend Su Hawk has really transformed the local tech association called Colorado Technology Association. It’s grown rapidly over the last few years and I’m impressed with what she’s done with it.
They have a group called Women In Technology, and its having throwing its’ first ever holiday and benefit party, Thursday, November 3rd, 2011 at 18th Street Atrium, 1621 18th Street, Denver, from 5:30 – 9:00 PM.
WIT is not only a fantastic opportunity to find new mentors and to network, but this holiday party is also a benefit for the Women’s Bean Project (WBP) – a nonprofit organization that helps break the cycle of poverty and unemployment for women in need by teaching job skills and self-sufficiency. If you’ve never had a WBP soup mix, grab one the next time you’re at the grocery store (in the dried bean section). They’re REALLY good, super healthy, make for an excellent quick meal, and are a sustainable way for the WBP to keep revenue up and continue supporting at-risk women.
There is a discount for attending the WIT holiday party, so if you’re considering going, reach out to me and I’ll get you details.
