Have fun and make a difference!  Come and join us this month!  Better yet, bring a friend!

Business and Professional Women of Denver serves working women in the Denver Metro area.  We meet the second Wednesday of the month. Costs to attend the meeting are detailed below.  Our program varies each month according to the needs and interests of our members.

We begin with a free-registration/no-host happy hour from 6-7pm, and then start our program and meeting promptly at 7pm, to have you done by 8:30 to head home to your family or a good night's sleep.

Our next speaker and topics of conversation will be:
We will be holding our annual Woman of the Year Celebration, honoring Ms. Regan Byrd.  Thank you everyone for your flexibililty with last month's weather cancellation, and we are thrilled to be able to finally honor Ms. Byrd this month!

Regan Byrd is an award-winning community activist and non-profit professional with over 10 years of experience in grassroots and social justice non-profit organizations,
including The Arc of Jefferson County, 9to5 Colorado: National Association of Working Women, and Hunger Free Colorado. Her current position is with The Bell Policy Center, working in fundraising, operations, and financial management.  Regan is a former commissioner on the Aurora Humans Rights Commission, and former board member for the youth mentorship non-profit “YESS Institute”. She is a recent graduate of the Transit Alliance’s Citizen Academy.

Regan has a deep commitment to social justice, institutional systems change, and collective liberation. She believes this is best done through self-reflexivity, knowledge cultivation, intentional inclusivity, coalition building, and centering marginalized perspectives.

Regan Byrd is an alumni of the University of Denver’s undergraduate program, with dual degrees in Public Policy and Sociology, and minors in Gender and Women’s studies, and English. Regan has been named a “Woman to Watch” by the Denver League of Women Voters, and is the winner of the 2015 Lilly Ledbetter award from 9to5 Colorado.
