"I joined the Empowerment Council so that I can support the incredible work that the Women’s Foundation is doing in a meaningful way. EC provides an opportunity to connect with an amazing group of women who care about the women & girls of our state. We want to be sure that every girl in Colorado will have the opportunities to succeed. We work to raise awareness on behalf of women’s issues in Colorado, while having fun and supporting each other along the way!"
- Jessica McHugh, 2015 Empowerment Council Chair
"I joined the Empowerment Council after attending WFCO’s annual luncheon in 2013. I’d been invited by a board member whom I admire greatly, and America Ferrara moved me to tears. I knew immediately that I had to be a part of the organization. WFCO has only continued to impress and inspire me since that time, through its research, initiatives and strong, successful, engaged supporters including the amazing women on the EC."
- Lara Nochomovitz, Empowerment Council Member
"I joined Empowerment Council in 2009 because of the extraordinary group of women involved. It felt like I found my tribe: younger professional women, passionate about issues facing women and girls, and wanting to be a part of the philanthropic community."
