LILY Network

Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver created the Ladies in Leadership for Youth (LILY) Network to help shine the spotlight on issues faced by girls in their pursuit of equal access to opportunity. Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver believes that investing in the futures of our members is one of the most rewarding and life-changing investments a person can make.

When you join the LILY Network, you will join an exclusive group of like-minded women – including some of Denver’s top community influencers – to inspire, empower, and encourage kids and teens to become the next generation of leaders in our community.

Join the LILY Network to be invited to our special LILY Network Luncheon on Thursday July 12, 2018. The event will be held at the Denver Botanic Gardens from 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

We are pleased to announce that the keynote speaker at our July LILY Network Luncheon is Katie Zeppieri!

Katie is a social entrepreneur, author, blogger and motivational speaker who has spoken across North America, including on the TED Talk International stage in Vancouver. She is the youngest weekly on-air radio panelist on Toronto’s NEWSTALK 1010 AM station. 

Katie is the founder of GIRL TALK Empowerment - an organization that provides life-changing experiences, a multi-platform support network, ethical merchandise, and leadership opportunities that give girls the tools they need to overcome personal challenges and make their mark on the world.

"Now more than ever I am committed to young women and girls having a clear path to leadership. I believe this starts with girls taking themselves seriously:  No more apologies for being competitive, for being achievers, or simply for having the drive to succeed. As long as you compete, achieve and succeed with honesty, integrity, and a healthy sense of humility, then you have nothing to apologize for, and you should never demur from the opportunity and indeed, the responsibility to lead."

“I am a very proud founder and supporter of the LILY network, as women in leadership are showing, now more than ever, that we can do amazing things when we stand together. “

“It is a true privilege to serve on the LILY Network. I have treasured spending time in Boys & Girls Clubs over the years, getting to know the children and sharing in their growth and development. With everything going on all around us in the world today, this new network presents a unique, timely  opportunity to walk shoulder to shoulder with our young girls in the Clubs, helping them to feel empowered and to reach their full potential.”
