We use a whole person approach focused on economic empowerment, community building, community investments, and health and mental well-being initiatives that include education, skill development, civic engagement, coaching and more. Our work is grounded in principles of equity, safety, and self-determination.

Mission & Vision

Our mission is to empower women who identify as BIPOC – and others who have faced systemic disadvantages – in Colorado and beyond to achieve economic prosperity by providing diverse economic development programming, facilitating community-building, promoting whole-person wellness, and fostering community investments.

We envision a Colorado – nation and globe – where the WDC is seen as a leading and trusted voice
within BIPOC and systemically disadvantaged communities, as well as the community-at-large; We work
towards an international community where the faces of wealth, leadership and influence is truly
reflective of the diversity of our communities, and specifically including women and youth of all abilities, faiths,
religions, languages and sexual orientations, as well as women who have faced incarceration, and others
who have faced systemic disadvantages.
