The Executive Women’s Summit University (EWSU) program was designed exclusively for senior-level, professional women with full and complex lives. The program content has been thoughtfully constructed to address challenges, insights and opportunities that are not typically offered in traditional leadership development platforms. It is an experience focused on self-discovery, and requires commitment, vulnerability and complete authenticity. The EWSU provides female leaders with opportunities to:
“The EWSU leadership development program was a discovery journey which completely re-energized me. It came at a good time in my career and allowed me to think about where I am and what I really want in my personal and professional life. It gave me confidence and boldness that I have weaved into my personal and professional life, preparing me to take risks that paid off in a big way.”

We adhere to strict participation guidelines in order to honor our attendees. Attendee requirements include:
EWSU leaders will meet with each registered attendee prior to their first session in order to obtain critical information that will be used to customize each experience, and select an executive mentor whom will work closely with them throughout the program. Established and well-regarded leaders will provide keynotes at each session, in order to share their personal story and highlight their expertise within various leadership-related topics. Participants will also take online assessments to deepen their knowledge of themselves, and create clarity around their purpose and leadership vision.
The 2017 EWSU program is hosted at CSU’s Executive MBA Offices, downtown: 410 17th Street, 7th Floor, Denver, CO 80202.
“The facilitators and keynotes at the EWSU sessions were very valuable. I’m not typically in a position to be around such accomplished and vulnerable female leaders and it was inspirational to hear their stories.”
Participants will be paired with a senior-level mentor and complete pre-work assignments prior to their first session. Pre-work includes various personality and leadership assessments, suggested reading and defining personal objectives to allow EWSU leaders to customize each participant’s experience through the program. Due to space restrictions, participation is limited to the first ten qualified registrants for the program.
The EWS University program will change the way participants think about leadership throughout their professional, philanthropic and personal lives.

“The EWSU is a program that was developed by women for women. This made the class feel more like a group of friends versus strangers, which allowed for greater vulnerability. It was so valuable being around other female leaders that are facing similar personal and professional issues. It was refreshing to realize that I am not alone.”

"It’s great to connect with like-minded professionals doing impactful things in our city and around the world!"
“I keep attending the Executive Women's Summit because of the honest, candid and genuine conversations that happen between women that attend these sessions.”
“What a dynamic, diverse, stimulating group of women. I met so many new people and learned from each one of them.”
Kristen Kenton puts together first class events with impactful networking and timely and relevant topics/speakers. I also really appreciate that she provides a non-profit organization to present their cause and gently remind us of the need to make sure we are giving back to the community.
"The atmosphere was comfortable making networking easy, even without knowing anyone on the first visit. EWS is definitely on my schedule each quarter."
