News / July 21, 2018

The Georgia Association of Black Women Attorneys (GABWA) honored BakerHostetler Partner Lisa Collins for her ground-breaking success during her three-year tenure as chair of the organization’s signature fundraising event, the Glitter Gala & Auction. Funds from the event go to scholarships for black women attending law school, a mentoring program that puts juvenile offenders on the path to college, and programs that provide free health screenings and education and bono advice on housing issues and estate planning.

Collins is a member of the GABWA Executive Board and the longest-serving Gala Chair in the organization’s history. She steps down this year as Gala Chair, having led the effort to raise more than $500,000 for the GABWA Foundation’s outreach efforts.

GABWA was founded in 1981 and has an active membership of nearly 500 men and women. Its mission is to support and galvanize the power of black women attorneys, advocate for women and children, and empower communities.
