15th Annual "Raising the Bar" Dinner

September 17, 2020
Hyatt Regency Denver at Colorado Convention CenterDenver, 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.

Extended deadline is April 20!

The CWBA Foundation is soliciting nominations for our 15th Annual Raising the Bar Dinner, scheduled for the evening of Thursday, September 17, 2020 at the Hyatt Regency Denver at the Colorado Convention Center. This year’s theme is “Women Who Lead." We want to honor women attorneys who have distinguished themselves by leading businesses, law firms, government offices, and non-profits. We are looking for managing partners, C-suite professionals, practice group leaders, heads of government departments, elected officials, chief judges, and anyone else who has raised the bar by reaching the highest levels in the workplace, shaping the direction of their organizations and leading the way for the next generation of women leaders.

Past honorees are not eligible for the award and can be found at www.cwbafoundation.org/RTBHonorees.

Please send your suggestions via email to Jennifer Hunt no later than April 20, 2020.  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.

Thank you for your help as we plan for this very important event.
