What Does It Mean to Take The Pledge?
All you have to do is pledge to do one hour of pro bono work during the course of one year (May 1, 2018 - April 30, 2019). We are even supplying you with all different ways you can do pro bono work for a whole host of different organizations with our Pro Bono Corner! Check it out now.
How Do I Fulfill My Pledge?
It's simple - any way you want to! There are three ways to fulfill your Pro Bono Pledge. You can share your time (60 teeny minutes), your money (donate the cost of one billable hour) or share your influence (for example, find a speaker for a CWBA program). Once you have completed your one hour, fill out the Pledge Completion Form and you are done. Told you we were making this easy!
If you have any questions about taking the Pro Bono Pledge or about pro bono opportunities customized just for you, feel free to contact CWBA Legal Services Co-Chair Erika Holmes at Erika@ELHolmesLaw.com.

Special Guest Speaker - Katica Roy
"When We Make It All About Women, We Leave Out the Other Half of the Story"
Many believe gender equity is a social issue; the economics tell us gender equity is an opportunity. Beyond the immediate social injustice, a lack of gender equity causes off-spouts and cracks in the workforce pipeline where missed opportunities for potential investment in female employees leads instead to their departure, to a lower level of females in the labor force, and to overall decreased levels of leveraging talented women.
We have a leaky pipeline -- one that costs the U.S. trillions of dollars. Businesses that fail to address this pipeline problem miss out on potential revenue, which constricts their economic footprint, and not only causes a shortage of female talent to get the job done but ultimately lost opportunity for growth and innovation.
Katica Roy is the CEO and founder of Denver-based Pipeline, an award-winning software as a service (SaaS) company that leverages artificial intelligence to identify and drive economic gains through gender equity. Pipeline launched the first gender equity app on Salesforce's AppExchange.
Katica is driven by a passion to eradicate economic inequality and champions the rights of refugees, women, and children.
