Colorado Becomes Fourth State to Adopt Gender Diversity on Boards Resolution

The Women’s Leadership Foundation of the Colorado Women’s Chamber of Commerce was on hand when Colorado’s General Assembly passed a legislative resolution (HJR 17-1017) calling for equitable and diverse gender representation on the boards of publicly held corporations headquartered in Colorado. The resolution was sponsored by Speaker of the House Crisanta Duran (D-5) and Rep. Lois Landgraf (R-21), and Senators Beth Martinez Humenik (R-24) and Nancy Todd (D-28). 

Within the three-year period from January 2018 through December 2020, the resolution encourages companies with nine or more director seats to have a minimum of three women directors on their boards, while companies with five to eight director seats have a minimum of two women, and those with fewer than five director seats have a minimum of one woman on their boards.
