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. Ideal candidates could include, for example, women forming community organizations to support girls in education, women working to create a professional pipeline for women in a particular industry, or women creating meaningful programs with a track record of empowering girls or women.

Please send your suggestions via email to Jennifer Hunt no later than the extended deadline of Friday, April 13, 2018. We would appreciate it if, in addition to identifying a potential honoree, you would provide not only the name and contact information, but also some background information on that person's particular qualifications for this award. Even if the person is well known in the community, the Foundation committee members may not know the specific details of the lawyer's accomplishments. 

Registration opens soon! Watch this website for more details.
