Guest Speaker: Former Senator Linda Newell
Completing her eighth year in the Colorado State Senate, Senator Newell has earned the reputation of being one of the most effective and hardest-working legislators at the Capitol. Because of her bipartisan and collaborative approach, she has been able to bring Republicans and Democrats together to create common-sense solutions for citizens of all demographics. Known as a problem-solver and bridge-builder, 98% of her bills have had bipartisan support.
She has also been called, “the conscience at the Capitol” and “champion for the children” where she has also led alternative dispute resolution and restorative justice efforts, while working toward the goal of becoming the “most civil state in the union.”
Sen. Newell is a graduate of the Harvard Kennedy School of Government program for Senior Executives in State and Local Government and the Council of State Government’s Legislative Academy. Senator Newell is a consultant and coach with an expertise in learning and organizational development, facilitation, and conflict resolution.
