Woman of Achievement Awards

Submit Your Nominations for the 2024 Woman of Achievement Awards!

As our members know all too well, 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 the 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 we need your help to find the 2024 Woman of Achievement! Nominations are due by 5 p.m. on April 15th.
