Labor Secretary Hilda Solis is in Denver to discuss how women are influencing the economy during a forum with other world figures.
The forum Solis is participating in Wednesday will look at the increase of women-owned businesses and how their enterprises can continue to grow. The forum will include 1992 Nobel Peace Laureate Rigoberta Menchu Tum and U.S. ambassador to Argentina Vilma Martinez.
The discussion is part of one of several roundtables for July's "Biennial of the Americas" in Denver. After the forum, Solis plans to tour Mi Casa Resource Center in Denver. The center has a program to train people in green jobs.
