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 2019 Raising the Bar dinner is scheduled for Wednesday, September 25, 2019 at the Hyatt Regency Denver at the Colorado Convention Center in the Capitol Ballroom.

This year's theme, "Risk Takers: Women Lawyers Who Raise the Bar by Overcoming Fear to Take on New Challenges," 

will honor women attorneys who raise the bar by stepping outside their comfort zones and found success in entirely different endeavors.

We are thrilled to have five amazing women to honor this year:

  CARRIE ANN LUCAS Posthumous Award

  KATHY NESBITT

Vice President for Administration, University of Colorado


  LIZ OERTLE
