In November 2017, Dr. Lisa Vallejos launched a new endeavor based in Denver with a global vision…it’s the Professionals of Color Network. The POCN is a brand new networking group for Professionals of Color in the Denver Metro area who are seeking to expand relationships and connections. We believe that the most robust and vibrant connections are made when genuine relationship is the foundation; here, we seek to provide the environment to make those relationships.
Our vision is to create a safe space where participants can build relationships with other professionals of color without the pitfalls found in other networking events such as microaggressions and the need to “code switch”.
While we are committed to creating a safe space, that does NOT mean that other groups are not welcome but please bear in mind that this event is specifically for POC.
