17th Annual "Raising the Bar" Celebration
Thursday, September 7, 2023
5:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Denver Athletic Club
1325 Glenarm Place, Downtown Denver
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 to celebrate the accomplishments of our honorees and thank them for paving the way for other women in Colorado and around the nation.
The 2023 Annual Raising the Bar Celebration will be held on Thursday, September 7, 2023, on the Sundeck of the Denver Athletic Club (DAC).
This year's theme, "Women Who Raise The Bar By Fostering Well-Being In The Legal Profession," will honor women attorneys who have implemented well-being strategies, model and promote health and wellness, and take concrete steps to enable lawyers to thrive.
We are thrilled to have six amazing women to honor this year:
Team of JUSTICE MONICA MÁRQUEZ, J. RYANN PEYTON and SARAH MYERS
