As the CWBA enters its 41st year, we acknowledge the many strides women lawyers have made. However, much work remains to be done. The CWBA is dedicated to helping each and every woman lawyer reach her full potential. We recognize that many of the hurdles facing women lawyers are even higher for those of us from historically marginalized communities. (We address this fact in our 2017-2020 Strategic Plan.) That’s why CWBA members are In This Together—we will support and fight for every woman lawyer’s equal opportunity in the profession.
I have found the CWBA to be a welcoming, supportive, and active organization; I believe you will, too. The CWBA helps its members navigate promotions, career shifts, family growth, and personal health challenges, both through its programming and through the valuable connections we make with each other. We also have some of the best parties and networking events in town!
So come join us as we use our power to drive change in our profession and in our communities. From pay equity to family-friendly workplaces to increasing the numbers of women in the upper echelons of law firms and on the bench, the CWBA is at the forefront of these efforts in Colorado. And we can’t do it without your help. We are stronger and more powerful together!
It is my great honor to serve as the CWBA’s President in 2018-2019, and to share its mission of Advancing Women as Leaders in the Law with you.
