15th Annual "Raising the Bar" Celebration
September 23, 2021
Virtual or In-Person at Denver Athletic Club
Reception begins at 5:30 pm

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:

Colorado Attorney Regulation Counsel, Colorado Supreme Court

City Attorney, City and County of Denver

Chief Deputy Attorney General, State of Colorado

State Public Defender, Colorado State Public Defender

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

Plan to join us at this popular 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 education work of the Colorado Women's Bar Association (CWBA), to promote advancement of women in the law, and to protect and promote welfare of all women.
