CWBA Foundation 14th Annual "Raising The Bar" Dinner

  • September 25, 2019
  • 5:30 PM - 8:30 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 2019 Raising the Bar dinner will be held on Wednesday, September 25, 2019 at the Hyatt Regency Denver at the Colorado Convention Center. This year’s theme is “Risk Takers: Women Lawyers Who Raise the Bar by Overcoming Fear to Take on New Challenges," honoring women attorneys who have stepped outside of their comfort zone and found success in entirely new endeavors.

Five amazing women will be honored this year:

CARRIE ANN LUCAS Posthumous Award

LIZ OERTLE

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 CWBA Foundation was founded in 1988 to implement the charitable and educational work of the CWBA, to promote the advancement of women in the law, and to protect and promote the welfare of all women.
