Women are taking the lead in Commerce City. They are sitting as elected officials, overseeing the education of our children, running small businesses, and making an impact in non-profit organizations that support multiple aspects of our community. Women are shift leaders, directors, entrepreneurs, CEO’s, managers and principals. Not only do they take formal and informal leadership roles in businesses, nonprofits, government, and school organizations, but they often hold the CEO role in their families. They are continually attempting to find the balance between their work and their families. Additionally, they often find themselves working with a different set of rules in how business is conducted. “You can't have it all, all at once. Who - man or woman - has it all, all at once? Over my lifespan, I think I have had it all. But in different periods of time, things were rough,” Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Even more pressing is the need to support women of color who are leaders in our city. Their climb up the ladder has been twice as difficult. "As a kid, I never could have imagined today. I will leave the ladder down behind me so girls of color know they can be anything they want to be,” (Representative Deb Haaland, Facebook post 2019).
