Peer Groups

WENCO Peer Groups are a member-only benefit designed to increase the value and engagement of our members' experience. Peer Groups are small groups of 5-10 members that meet on an ongoing basis, in addition to regularly scheduled WENCO events. Members who participate in these groups will convene over a shared passion or interest with the support, advice and encouragement of like-minded peers.

Our 2020 Peer Groups include:

  • Book Club, led by Julie Clark
    WENCO’s Peer Group Book Club looks to build a community of women who support each other on the journey to being their most resilient, empowered, authentic and confident self. It will inspire members to take action and live their best life through intentional discussions and meaningful connections. At each monthly meeting, we will discuss that month’s book selection and vote on the next month’s powerful book selection.
  • Financially Fit, led by Christian Ofner
    We’ll have regular calls/meetings that will provide you with a better understanding around investing, different types of accounts, insurance, budgeting, estate planning, etc. and proactive ideas/strategies you can implement to help you navigate any market environment or personal situation that comes your way. Being financially resilient means you set yourself up for success by controlling the things you can control now and adjusting and overcoming along the way.
  • Just a Girl and her Gun, led by Alex Sale
    The women’s shooting group is for those looking to get into the shooting sports for the first time, to sharpen their existing skills, or just to get out and have fun with other ladies in an environment that encourages learning about gun safety, personal protection, hunting & more! We will be meeting every other month and will be rotating through the different types of shooting so that there’s something for everyone and there’s always something new to learn or improve upon!
  • Lose 5 Gain 5, led by Sally Hallingstad
    The Lose 5 Gain 5 group is geared towards holding each other accountable to our overall fitness goals. We currently meet virtually twice a month to check-in and when able, find workouts to do together. Whether you are looking for motivation, a new challenge or just a few ladies to sweat with, we're the group for you!    
  • Reel Naturals, led by Caley Van Cleave
    Tired of fly fishing alone? Or looking to pick fly fishing up as a new hobby? Join your fellow WENCO ladies riverside for some memorable moments and lasting connections. This peer group will foster a welcoming environment for all skill levels. Pick up new skills through small group casting clinics, attending local fly fishing industry events, or simply logging time on the river. Let’s create those fishing stories together!
  • WEN@Work, led by Anna Conrad
    Today’s constantly changing workplace brings new challenges, opportunities, and uncertainty. Whether dealing with an unpredictable manager, irritating coworkers, or remote work challenges, this virtual peer group will provide you with the support, resources, and tips you need to succeed.
  • WENCO Gals Fore Golf, led by Jenni Sparks
    Interested in playing some sunset-nines, easy scrambles, or some driving range dates to get your swing on? Join your fellow WENCO ladies on the linx fore fun! This peer group will arrange times to meet and play golf at courses around Denver, depending on peer group member schedules and skills. Meet some new friends in the Energy community, enjoy the great outdoors, and laugh! No handicaps required – all levels welcome.

Time, location and frequency of these groups is dependent on the group lead. If you are interested in learning more, please complete the interest form and Brecken Gillmore, Peer Group Chair, will reach out with more details!
