Amanda Hasty, who earned a Masters of Resources Law Studies degree in '03 from Denver Law, is a co-founder and co-executive director of Impact Colorado. The organization was created in 2011 by Laura B. Embleton, JD '91, and Ms. Hasty, in response to an identified need to increase the awareness of Coloradoans on issues impacting Colorado residents.
Their vision is to create a non-profit organization to identify issues and develop solutions specific to Colorado’s economy, education, local governance, healthcare, and water. Impact Colorado provides a mobile classroom for participants to learn through exploration of the state. By connecting participants with local and state leaders, participants are provided with the knowledge, skills and techniques to partake in collaborative issue development.
Ms. Hasty is also the owner of BE Accord LLC, a business development company. She is a leadership coach and business consultant and assists companies in developing operational strategies to drive sustainable and community conscious businesses. In addition, she has facilitated growth strategies for not-for-profits in Colorado and New Mexico.
Additionally, she is an adjunct professor at the University of Denver where she teaches at the Women's College. Ms. Hasty volunteers as a mentor for the Greater Good Academy. She serves as an advisory member on the Diversity and Inclusiveness Committee at the Colorado Alliance for Environmental Education and is a board member for Healthkind Foundation. HealthKind aspires to implement sustainable, community-based health and wellness programs and services in the developing world.
Ms. Hasty earned an Executive Masters of Business Administration from Daniels College of Business at the University of Denver.
It is great to see how alumni from Denver Law's graduate programs enjoy successful and fulfilling careers.
