Applications, which are due no later than 5 pm, Wednesday, January 15, 2020, can be found at:

The JeffCo International Women’s Day celebration is an official International Women’s Day event and can be found on the international website at:

Recognition of Jefferson County’s “Unsung Heroine” and the winner of the “Shattered Glass” award are just two of the elements of this popular annual event which complements the global International Women’s Day celebration. Other activities for the day in Jefferson County include breakouts, and the luncheon itself. The luncheon will feature an exciting keynote speaker, a Women’s Day “marketplace,” door prizes, swag bags and more!

Jefferson County merchants either owned or operated by a woman, or featuring a product or service for women, also have the opportunity to participate in International Women’s Day with an item for the swag bags that will be at each seat at the luncheon. Additionally, special deals for Women’s Day will be promoted on the website, in press releases, and in advertising where appropriate.

This is the Fifth year that International Women’s Day has been celebrated in Jefferson County, Colorado. In many countries around the world, this is a day when women are recognized for their achievements without regard to divisions, whether national, ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic, or political. International Women's Day first emerged at the turn of the twentieth century in North America and across Europe and the first time it was observed nationally in the U.S. was in 1909. The Charter of the United Nations, signed in 1945, was the first international agreement to affirm the principle of equality between women and men. The United Nations’ theme for their women’s initiative is “Planet 50-50 by 2030: Step It Up for Gender Equality.”
Sponsorships featuring a number of benefits, and individual registrations, are still available for the March 6, 2020 JeffCo International Women’s Day luncheon. However, space is limited and “early-birds” are rewarded with lower registration prices. More information about sponsorships can be had by visiting: or calling 303-277-9520. No walk-ups will be admitted. The event is expected to sell out in advance again this year.
