October 21, 2021

We are pleased to announce that Cori Ghitter, Deputy Executive Director and Director of Policy and Education, is this year’s recipient of the Women in Law Leadership (WILL) Leadership in the Profession (Broader Roles) Award.

“I’ve had the benefit of watching some amazing people receive this award and hearing some incredible speakers from Chief Justice McLachlin to Justice Abella to Justice Martin, and many others who received Lifetime Achievement awards,” says Cori. “I’ve been inspired by what these people have accomplished and contributed to the legal profession. The fact that my peers would nominate me and that I was accepted means a lot to me.”

Since coming to the Law Society in 2014, Cori has harnessed her unique leadership style which focuses on collaboration, empowerment and approaching every project with enthusiasm to advance important initiatives. Some of these initiatives include changing the learning plan for articling students, introducing the innovation sandbox for legal service providers and advancing our lawyer competence and equity, diversity and inclusion work.

“The Law Society has benefitted greatly from Cori’s contributions since she joined us in 2013 and her commitment to our work has helped to advance our strategic goals. We are proud to call Cori one of our own,” says Chief Executive Officer & Executive Director, Elizabeth J. Osler, QC.
