DENVER — Multiple people from the Boulder Valley and Northern Colorado have been named to CiviCO’s Colorado Governor’s Fellowship, a program to cultivate skills of civic-minded leaders. Thirty business executives and community leaders are on the 2023-24 list.
The Colorado Governor’s Fellowship program prepares mainly private and nonprofit sector leaders for opportunities to deepen their understanding of Colorado state government and statewide public policy issues, the organization said in a press statement. CiviCO received more than 80 applicants for the program.
“I am thrilled to welcome the newest cohort of Governors Fellows through the continued partnership between CiviCO and the Colorado Governor’s Office. These fellows will gain valuable experience from this program and go on to help ensure Colorado is the best place to live, work and run or start a business,” Gov. Jared Polis said in the statement.
