Engagement of Women in the Profession: Roundtable and Panel Discussion
Date: October 19, 2021
Earlier this year, the Canadian Chapter of the International Association of Women Judges, in partnership with the Canadian Bar Association Alberta and the Law Society of Alberta, surveyed legal professionals in Alberta about the unique obstacles faced by women in the profession. A summary of the responses from this survey can be downloaded here.
The project is now ready to move onto the next phase of engagement in the form of a virtual panel presentation and roundtable discussions with members of the legal profession scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 19, 2021 at 5:30 p.m. This event will include a panel discussion with leading women in Alberta’s legal profession, followed by small breakout group discussions with attendees.
Registration for this event is free of charge, and we invite all members of the profession to participate, not only women, as it will take a collective effort from all of us to effect lasting change.
*This event was previously scheduled for Monday, Oct. 18, 2021 but has since been rescheduled to the date shown above.
