Welcome to Artemis
Artemis Women is a loosely structured network that brings an interesting and diverse group of Colorado Springs women together who care about the future of our community.
Our goal is simple: To provide a balanced forum for an eclectic and electrifying dialogue that will stimulate vision for commitment to Colorado Springs.
As of July 2007, Artemis Women is an IRS 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization. We also have a partner organization, Pikes Peak Artemis, that is a 501(3)(4) organization.
Artemis Women has added Forums and Learning Circles to educate our membership. Furums are always looking for new members and we look forward to topics suggestions for Learning Circles.
The Artemis Name
Our name, for the Greek goddess Artemis, was chosen because it exemplifies the many positive facets of the character of women. Artemis is known for her strength, integrity and power of illumination.
“She is the Goddess of the Moon and twin sister of Apollo. She is the goddess of the hunt and uses the silver bow. She is a friend to mortals and dances through the countryside in silver sandals giving divine protection and knowledge to animals and the young. She rides the sky in her silver chariot and shoots her arrows of silver moonlight below to illuminate the earth.”
