When you join The Leadership Investment, you receive the resources necessary to maximize your leadership potential, and you become part of an inspirational and impactful career-minded community. We foster alignment between individual and corporate values and inspire leaders toward the best that they can be!

The Leadership Investment is proud to be participating in the Colorado Gives Day on Tuesday, December 9, 2014. Colorado Gives Day is an annual statewide movement to celebrate and increase philanthropy in Colorado through online giving. And for the first time ever it features a $1 Million Incentive Fund created by their partners, Community First Foundation and First Bank. Every nonprofit receiving a donation on Colorado Gives Day receives a portion of the Incentive Fund, which increases the value of every dollar donated!

As a non-profit, we rely on our donors, our annual “Leader of Vision” donors, and other fundraising efforts to fulfill our mission of getting more gender diversified leadership teams across all levels of management and all industry sectors in our local, regional, and global-based companies in Colorado.

Gender diversified leadership teams are the key to sustaining economic prosperity and creating positive organizational health.  As you may know, Colorado is lagging in our shared leadership statistics, especially at the board level. We rank #48.  It is up to all of us to improve these statistics for the future.

In order to impact change The Leadership Investment is:

  • Expanding and upgrading our leadership networking, mentoring, and educational offerings,
  • Helping benchmark our local corporations against national statistics to establish baseline data to track success and help our local community achieve higher standards, and
  • Augmenting our delivery mechanisms through new e-learning and distance learning technologies to expand our reach.

Becoming a donor for The Leadership Investment allows you to positively impact the careers of women leaders, which leads to sustainable workplace cultures and thriving communities.  Your donation dollars go towards mentoring and leadership development programs, helping women acquire career skills and create powerful connections to advance their careers.

We realize that our members, participants, and donors are strong leaders in our community and by their strength of character are loyal contributors to many non-profits in our state. We acknowledge and thank you for your leadership and extending your hand forward and back to help others.

Please remember Tuesday, December 9th as an important date for you to recognize the non-profits that you believe in by donating online at or you may schedule your donation in advance by clicking on the “CoGivesDay" button on their Web page.

We thank you for the support we have received from you for a very successful 2014. We hope you will continue your personal commitments, whether it is through your donation to The Leadership Investment, through volunteerism, or through your support of other Colorado non-profits.

Sincerely yours,

Robin Heller
President & CEO
