CiviCO, formerly Quarterly Forum, has established a legacy over the past 23 years of convening Colorado’s top leaders across all sectors and industries in a non-partisan environment to strengthen connections, leadership and community engagement. Since 2016, CiviCO has graduated 151 fellows who are now leading and serving predominantly across the state of Colorado.
Thanks to partnerships with the State of Colorado and former administration officials, the Colorado Governors Fellowship Program enables participants to shadow members of the Polis Administration, statewide agencies, regional, county and municipal-level leaders, and work on real-time public policy projects with a government client, as well as engage with faculty at the University of Colorado-Denver School of Public Affairs, and Cabinet-level or senior administration officials within Colorado.
“The program is committed to creating spaces and platforms for leaders to grow from a place of seeking to understand Colorado’s rural/urban divide, diversity of thought, political affiliation, and the value of civic engagement and multi-sector leadership,” said Ryan Heckman, chairman of CiviCO.
