"The fast-growing Denver-area support of the Network’s mission to advance women and help create better workplaces and more competitive organizations in the consumer products and retail industry has been outstanding,” said Vice President of Member and Regional Services Stephanie McFee. "The hard work of the region’s first slate of officers and so many other volunteers to advance the careers of talented women underscores the great power ― and still-untapped potential ― of female leaders industry wide.”

Among the companies represented at the NEW Denver launch were Acosta Sales & Marketing, Atkins Nutritionals Inc., MillerCoors, Safeway Inc., WhiteWave Foods and XL Edge.
