Our theme for this 2016-2017 bar year is “Looking Back, and Moving Forward
,” which celebrates the work of the WBA’s first 100 years, while acknowledging the work that still needs to be done to shape the future of women lawyers for the next 100 years. The WBA as an organization serves as a catalyst for women helping women. At this year’s Annual Dinner, we will be honoring women leaders who epitomize this theme and have furthered the advancement of women in the profession. The WBA looks forward to honoring and publicly saluting their achievements. 

Founded in 1917, the WBA is one of the oldest voluntary bar associations in the United States dedicated to the advancement of women in the law. Our Annual Dinner helps support the ongoing efforts of the WBA to maintain the honor and integrity of the legal profession, to promote the administration of justice, and to advance and protect the interests of women lawyers. Proceeds from the Annual Dinner also help support the WBA Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization whose mission is to leverage the generosity of lawyers and friends to support nonprofits that serve the legal and related needs of women and girls in the DC Metropolitan community
