Colorado Women’s College Collaboratory (CWCC) has been hard at work, advancing our vision to “be a global leader in advancing women in the 21st century through transformative education, leadership development, public good work, and research.”  CWCC has begun developing a research agenda that expands current research at the University of Denver and identifies gaps addressing women’s lives, including women and girls of color.  Meetings have been held with the Latino Community Foundation of Colorado/Latinas LEAD, as well as the Denver Office of Women and Families/Denver Women’s Commission to discuss potential research partnerships, as well as collaboration on a May 2017 Gender Equity Summit for local government representatives from across the state of Colorado. CWCC also released our first research report in September 2016, The Impact of a $12 Minimum Wage on Women in Colorado; this project – a partnership with the Women’s Foundation of Colorado — successfully engaged researchers from DU’s Daniels College of Business and the Graduate School of Social Work, and was credited with contributing to the successful passage of Amendment 70 to the Colorado State Constitution, increasing the state minimum wage to $12/hour by 2020. In addition, they highlighted their minimum wage research at the TEDx Mile High Women’s Conference in October, where they engaged with over 2,000 attendees on the importance of this issue, and also solicited ideas for future research topics.
