Topic: Representation Matters
Back in 1972, the first year women were officially allowed to participate in the Boston Marathon, only 8 women ran. Today 12,171 women are racing in a field of 28,600. Representation Matters. When we can see ourselves in others, we expand our own horizons.
At our October BWLG we are excited to introduce you to several Boulder Women who breaking down gender barriers and carving their own paths within traditionally male dominated industries. Please join us for this special panel discussion where we will learn their stories of passion, resilience and success.

My name is Hannah Harrington and I have been with the Boulder Fire Department for a little over 9 years. I grew up in Alaska and moved down to Colorado in 2009. I started off going to school at the Art Institute of Colorado but quickly realized it was not the path for me. I started personal training and found my way to the fire service. I got hired with Boulder Fire in 2013 and am currently on C shift at Station 3 which is the Water Rescue station located at 30th and Arapahoe. I am currently a firefighter and member of the Water Rescue team. I am 1 of 2 leads of the Peer Support team, the Peer Fitness Team Lead, as well as a member of the Local 900 Executive Board.
