Springtime for WiD and Colorado

admin : March 21, 2011 1:56 am : News

Did you know this website has a blog? We like to put up occasional posts that we think will interest you. Today, for example, you can read a great article by Jennifer Gray about International Women’s Day and WiD. We hope you’ll drop by when you have a minute or two and see what we’ve been up to!
Speaking of things we’re up to, here are the next few events we have scheduled:

4/5/11  Canvas & Cocktails with WiD (have fun painting and hanging out with other WiD members)
4/9/11 Members Only Event: Spring Hike (“I love to go a-wandering, along the mountain track! And as I go, I love to sing, my knapsack on my back. Valderie! Valdera! Valderie! Valdera-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!”)
4/16/11 AIA’s Box City: A great opportunity to volunteer, help some kids, and get an IDP hour or three. Being a member of AIA is NOT required!

WiD in the World

admin : February 16, 2011 6:55 pm : Blog, News

Have you been to a WiD trivia night lately? They’re once a month at the Irish Snug and you wear the color of the month? If you have, I’m pretty sure you’d remember Meg Kullerd, the organizer — bubbly, smart, great laugh. Turns out she writes too. Last month, she had an article on the AIA Colorado Emerging Professionals Blog. It’s titled: “Working the Market– Dating and Job Searching“. Check it out, and keep your eyes and ears open for the next WiD Trivia Night. There’ll be one in March and everyone, WiD members and WiD-curious alike, are invited!
If you’re also interested in volunteering, check out our next volunteer opportunity on March 12th. Wid on the Farm!

WiD Winter Lecture

admin : February 10, 2011 8:05 pm : News, Share

Thank you to everyone who turned out for the Winter Lecture. We listened to Dana Romanoff talk (and looked at her stunning photos) about immigration from Mexico and the effect it has on the women left behind. She shared great information, great insight, and sparked a great conversation afterward. Visit her website if you’re curious about her work.
Thank you, Dana, for sharing your lovely photos with us!

Next on the calendar… volunteering opportunities, a donation drive, and the next Trivia Night! Join us!

2011 Plans Discussed at WiD Retreat

admin : August 31, 2010 7:58 pm : News, Share

This Sunday, the Wid Steering Committee met for 7 hours to gear up for next year’s efforts.  We had  elections for committee chairs, examined what worked and what didn’t during the past year, ate well, and set our goals for 2011.  The Events Committee will be expanding on the concept of the popular Hard Hat Tours and the Networking Committee is thinking outside the box.  Yes, there will be a return of the kickball!  The Outreach Committee is continuing to focus on mentoring.  The Communications Committee will be enlivening this site with blog (fun and casual) and news (informative) items.  If you’re interested in being a part of what makes WiD tick, let us know. Once you become a WiD member, email us a request at membership@widdenver.org and we’ll send you the information on the next Steering Committee Meeting so you can join us.

WiD Revamps Website Structure

admin : July 30, 2010 5:56 pm : News, Share

Welcome to WiD’s new, restructured website!  It’s the same beautiful design done for us by Steidley Design, LLC, but with a smooth running WordPress structure beneath, developed by Shompton LLC.  While we are ironing out the “new website wrinkles,” we appreciate your patience and feedback, but it’ll all be worth it for the enhanced membership functions, the ability to pre-pay for upcoming events and classes, and a more intuitively organized site.  If you have any comments or concerns, feel free to contact us at info@widdenver.org.

We’ve got lots of plans for a members only section of the site, but for now we’re focusing on getting what we have working smoothly for our members and our volunteers.   In the latter half of the year, we’ll be starting up a fun blog/news section with feature articles on our past events and activities, teasers and behind-the-scenes stories for our upcoming events, and other entertaining heads up on activities, people, and news that may interest our readers.  We hope you come back to see our online presence develop.  In the meantime, you can also follow us on Facebook, where we’ll be keeping you up to date on WiD’s blossoming.  If you’re a member, join us on LinkedIn.  It’s one of the many Members-Only benefits designed to give you networking connections with other WiD members.  Membership is only $35 for individuals — click here to join us!
