Colorado Leadership Stories Project

The Colorado Leadership Stories project launched in early 2021 as part of the COLead Initiative. The project inspires by telling the stories of Coloradans who are influencing their communities, organizations, and institutions as formal or informal leaders.

This storytelling project includes profiles, Q&As, interviews, and first person narratives featuring all types of Colorado leaders, from educators to scientific researchers to women champions for diversity, equity, and inclusion. We look forward to continuing to share more stories of community impact and influence.
