MPA alumna Leslie Foster ’85 is one of 10 women who will be inducted into the Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame at a ceremony in March 2018. Inductees have made exemplary contributions in their fields, elevated the status of women, opened new frontiers, and been sources of inspiration for others.
Leslie’s bio on the CWHF website states:
For nearly 30 years, Leslie has devoted her career and her outside activities to transforming the lives of women, children, and people who are transgender by providing positive relationships, resources and a community of support through her work as President of The Gathering Place, a Denver nonprofit organization. Additionally, Leslie has supported and mentored countless women volunteers, service recipients and professionals who share her desire to improve the world, who value their own strengths, and then who use their strengths to make contributions to improve their own lives and the lives of others.
