IWN Denver: From Cupcakes to Chemicals

When:
April 14 2016

Details:

Please join Independent Women's Network Denver chapter on April 14th at the Independence Institute. 

Julie Gunlock, IWF Culture of Alarmism Director, will discuss the culture of alarmism present in society today. Americans are bombarded with messages about how everyday products and activities threaten their health and the health of their children. Politicians and government regulators then use this alarmism to promote regulations that expand their power. The costs of this dynamic are serious: wasted tax dollars, higher costs and inferior goods for consumers, fewer jobs in companies navigating through red tape, and needlessly worried, less free Americans.

Event Postponed: Into The Virtual World: Are Women More Connected or Bowling Alone?

When:
February 18 2016

Details:

Due to unforeseen scheduling conflicts, Indepenedent Women's Forum has found it necessary to postpone Into The Virtual World: Are Women More Connected or Bowling Alone? until further notice.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and will let you know when the event is rescheduled.

Thank you for your interest and support for Independent Women's Forum.

INTO THE VIRTUAL WORLD: Are Women More Connected or Bowling Alone?


We often hear that women are the primary users of social media. IWF frequently points to technology as the real reason for women’s success with work-life balance today.

But is our new virtual world helping or hurting women and their families?

There’s no doubt new technology is changing the way we work, think, and behave. It gives us access to more information and creates new avenues for communication and enrichment. At the same time, it raises difficult new questions about our culture, privacy, and the role of the state.

Join the Independent Women's Forum on February 18th for an all-star panel where we will take a more in-depth look at virtual living and consider how it’s affecting our professional and personal successes and what all this means for the role of government.
