13th Annual "Raising the Bar" Dinner

September 11, 2018
Hyatt Regency Denver at Colorado Convention Center
Denver, Colorado
Reception 5:30 pm; Dinner 6:30 pm

 

Each year, the CWBA Foundation honors women lawyers who have made a difference in our communities and have “raised the bar” for all of us. The evening is always a memorable one with about 400 attendees gathering to celebrate the accomplishments of our honorees and to thank them for paving the way for other women in Colorado and around the nation.

The 2018 Raising the Bar dinner is scheduled for Tuesday, September 11, 2018 at the Hyatt Regency Denver at the Colorado Convention Center.  

This year's theme, "Women Lawyers Who Raise the Bar through Promoting and Elevating Women and Girls," will honor women attorneys who raise the bar through work focusing on the interests of women and girls across the legal, political, and social spectrum.
