Join the Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame August 24, 2022 from 5:30 to 7pm for an informative and inspiring talk featuring Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame inductee Jill Tietjen, PE.  

A veritable powerhouse, Jill Tietjen embodies a can-do spirit that takes her from power plants to corporate boardrooms, classrooms, and podiums as she speaks across the nation.

Jill S. Tietjen, PE, is an author, international speaker, and electrical engineer. After more than 45 years in the electric utility industry, her professional focus is now on women’s advocacy, worldwide.  A former blogger for The Huffington Post, she speaks nationally on the accomplishments of women, nominates women for awards, and continues to write books (12 published to date).

Following in the footsteps of her bestselling and award-winning books include, Her Story: A Timeline of the Women Who Changed America and Hollywood; Her Story, An Illustrated History of Women and the Movies and her latest award-winning book, Over, Under, Around and Through: How Hall of Famers Surmount Obstacles, (Fulcrum) was released in May of 2022.

She is a frequent keynote speaker as her positive energy and her ability to relate to the audience result in inspired and energized listeners. She has been inducted into the Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame and the Colorado Authors Hall of Fame. 

CWHF Inductee Jill Tietjen, “Over, Under, Around and Through” discusses concerns about mental health, exacerbated or identified because of the pandemic, are leading many people to look for ways to become more resilient and to face and work through the obstacles in their lives. “Over, Under, Around and Through: How Hall of Famers Surmount Obstacles” (Fulcrum Publishing) provides the secrets of how Hall of Famers overcame the obstacles in their lives to become stronger, smarter, and more resilient. 

Following her talk, Jill will be available to sign her latest book “Over, Under, Around & Through” featuring fifty personal accounts from successful women (all CWHF inductees). 

Local author Mimi Pockross was invited to sign her lovely book, “Pulling Harvey Out of Her Hat”, about CWHF inductee Mary Coyle Chase.

Talk about working from home. . . . Pulling Harvey Out of Her Hat chronicles the story of how Mary Chasea housewife with three children from a working-class Irish community in Denver, Colorado became a Pulitzer Prizewinning playwright for Harvey, a Broadway comedy about a gentle soul and his invisible six-foot-and-one-half-inch-tall rabbit friend. This entertaining and inspiring account traces how Chase achieved her dream of becoming a famous playwright while remaining in Denver where she worked for the Rocky Mountain News, married an editor, and raised a family. Chase was inducted into the Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame in 1985.

This year, with Educational Partner, National History Day in Colorado, and longtime supporters, Rocky Mountain Public Media (RMPBS) and Chevron Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame is launching a new educational initiative dedicated to developing a curriculum for Colorado Youth to learn more about the incredible accomplishments and significance of Colorado Women past and present. 

This curriculum will be made available to educators and institutions across the state to help our communities understand the impact and contributions women have made over many decades here in Colorado.
