Over the past eleven years, under the vision and leadership of Executive Director Wendy Hawthorne, Groundwork Denver has undergone tremendous growth in both programming and the fiscal health of our nonprofit organization. More importantly, Wendy’s team has worked together to build a grassroots organization that has had significant positive impacts on both the environment and the lives of the people in the communities we serve.
So it is with sincere appreciation and genuine warm wishes that we announce that Wendy has decided to step down from her position as Executive Director as of the end of December.
In her letter to the board of directors, Wendy wrote: “I still care deeply about the work of the organization and the communities that we serve, but I’ve decided it is time for me to take a short sabbatical and then pursue a new challenge. We’ve crafted a new strategic plan and have a great staff and board, and Groundwork Denver is on solid financial ground, so the time feels right for new leadership.” The Board of Directors echoes Wendy’s words and is confident that we will continue to pursue our mission for decades to come.
