Join us for another great conversation! Many of you attended the May 14, 2020 CWBA Virtual Convention Gender Equality Session with Magistrate Judge Kristen Mix and Judge Mariana Vielma.
The initial conversation held during Convention was based on responses from CWBA members to survey questions sent in advance of the session on the status of gender equality in the Colorado legal profession, including members’ personal experiences with gender bias in interactions with the courts and the bar.
This session was so informative and popular, the CWBA is continuing the conversation! In addition to Judge Mix and Judge Vielma, we are thrilled to have Justice Monica Márquez join the panel. Register now and come ready to have a great conversation.

Join us for 45 minutes of gratitude and reflection through yoga.
Research has shown that yoga can help us not only feel better but also address the world's challenges by bringing forth calm, light, and unity.
This 45-minute Yin class aims to stimulate and target connective tissues by working gently into the edge of postures through long holds (between one and seven minutes). Participants will find a sense of slow, deep unwinding and release that is very different from what is found in traditional movement classes.
The class is free and suitable for all levels. Zoom details will be emailed to all registrants.
