Submit your Nomination for MRWBA’s Woman of Achievement Award!

As we are all aware, women lawyers often feel ‘invisible’ to firm, corporate and government leaders when it comes to being recognized for the work they do. To help us address this issue on a local level, each year the MRWBA Woman of Achievement Award recognizes a member who “exemplifies legal professionalism.” Our list of past honorees reads like a virtual Who’s Who of the Metro Richmond women's legal community, and now we need your help to find the 2020 Woman of Achievement!

Click here for criteria and the nomination form.

All nominations are due no later than November 6th. Questions? E-mail Awards Chair Blaire Hawkins O’Brien.


Limited Sponsorships Still Available

MRWBA’s events, even the virtual ones, are possible thanks to the generosity of our sponsors. This year, we are offering two sponsorship levels (Platinum and Gold). These sponsorships provide an opportunity to promote your brand to a demographic of well-educated, professional women with an average salary of $101,126 per year. E-mail for details on available sponsorships.

We appreciate our sponsors’ continuing support during these challenging times!
