    Each year, the Colorado Women's Bar Association Foundation (CWBAF) honors women lawyers who have made a difference in our communities and have "raised the bar" for all of us. The evening promises to be memorable, with attendees gathering in person and remotely to celebrate the accomplishments of our honorees and thank them for paving the way for other women in Colorado and around the nation.

    The 2021 Raising the Bar celebration is scheduled for Thursday, September 23, 2021 at the Denver Athletic Club's outdoor sundeck.  

    This year's theme, "Women Who Lead: Lawyers Who Raised the Bar Leading Through Crisis," will honor women attorneys who raise the bar through work focusing on the interests of women and girls across the legal, political, and social spectrum.


    We are thrilled to have five amazing women to honor this year:

    JESSICA YATES
    Colorado Attorney Regulation Counsel, Colorado Supreme Court



    KRISTIN BRONSON
    City Attorney, City and County of Denver



    NATALIE HANLON LEH
    Chief Deputy Attorney General, State of Colorado



    MEGAN RING
    State Public Defender, Colorado State Public Defender



    MICHELLE LUCERO
    Chief Administrative Officer & General Counsel, Children’s Hospital Colorado



    We hope that you will consider sponsoring this annual event to help us continue our important work. The Colorado Women's Bar Association Foundation (CWBAF) was founded in 1988 to implement the charitable and educational work of the Colorado Women's Bar Association (CWBA), to promote the advancement of women in law, and to protect and promote the welfare of all women.

    ONGOING PROGRAMS

    The CWBA Foundation provides an annual scholarship to a law student at both the University of Colorado School of Law and the University of Denver Sturm College of Law who best exemplifies our mission. Previously, the scholarship was $2,500 per year. However, for the five-year period 2016 through 2020, the scholarship amount may vary year to year as we fund an endowed scholarship. For years 2021 and beyond, it is our goal to fund each scholarship at a $5,000 level or above. Click Here to view the requirements for the scholarships and a list of past scholarship recipients on the Scholarships and Grants page. You can donate to the scholarship program on the Scholarships and Grants page as well. 


    PAST EVENTS AND ACTIVITIES

    The CWBA Foundation has also funded studies on the wage gap between female and male lawyers in Colorado, co-funded a national study about part-time partnership positions, and much more. Often, the programs funded by the CWBA Foundation are the programs that are put on by the CWBA itself. For example, the CWBA Foundation funded the CWBA’s successful program, Storming the Bench. Please see a partial list of past programs and activities on the “Past Projects and Activities” page.
