EWI was established in San Francisco in 1938 as Executive Secretaries, an organization to bring key women together to promote their firms and improve their community.

The Denver Chapter was chartered on November 22, 1954.

In 1977 the name was changed to Executive Women International to better reflect the changing role of women in the workplace and the international expansion.

EWI continues to evolve as the world changes.  Today there are nearly 70 Chapters in major cities in the United States and Canada.  The organization is constantly seeking to be current and relevant to its members, with its network available to every member firm.


Executive Women International (EWI) brings together key individuals from diverse businesses for the purpose of; promoting member firms, enhancing personal and professional development, and encouraging community involvement.

Comprised of an exclusive network of business and professional women united to promote their firms through the exchange of information and education, EWI fosters personal growth and leadership.  It is dedicated to the civic and philanthropic enrichment of its community.

EWI Denver provides service to the local community through the Adult Students in Scholastic Transition scholarship program and our local literacy program.
