Brenda J. Allen, associate vice chancellor for Diversity and Inclusion at the University of Colorado Denver | Anschutz Medical Campus, was one of four women honored at the recent Women in Leadership and Management Awards (WiLMA) luncheon, which was part of the Mountain Region Black Economic Summit in Denver.

The award — named in honor of Wilma J. Webb, former legislator and Denver's first African-American first lady — recognizes women who have made a significant impact in business, education, the community and politics. This premier networking luncheon is designed to inspire guests by honoring several local women for their service and accomplishments.

Other recipients were Glynis Avila Albright, CEO and founder of Just Sweet Enough; Priscilla Brown, executive director of the Black United Fund of Colorado; and State Rep. Rhonda Fields (D-Aurora).
