DigitALL: Innovation & Technology for Gender Equality


Québec City


March 6, 2023

Time of event


Join us to celebrate International Women’s Day!

This year’s United Nation’s International Women’s Day theme is DigitALL: Innovation and Technology for Gender Equality. More than ever, technology plays a major role in how we live and how we work. During the pandemic and now throughout the recovery, there have been dramatic shifts in how we work, connect, and collaborate with others. This session will explore the impact that the pandemic had and continues to have on women at work and at home, how technology and innovative ways of working can promote gender equality, and how law firms and organizations can adopt a gender-responsive digital approach to the post-pandemic workplace to ensure inclusion for all.

This panel discussion will feature a dynamic panel of gender equality advocates, including:

  • Zabeen Hirji, Executive Advisor, Future of Work, Deloitte, and Former Chief Human Resources Officer, RBC
  • Paulette Senior, President and CEO, Canadian Women’s Foundation
  • Aliya Ramji, Partner and Co-founder of MT>Ventures, McCarthy Tétrault 

The panel will be moderated by Charlene Theodore, Chief Inclusion Officer, McCarthy Tétrault and will feature remarks from Dave Leonard, CEO, McCarthy Tétrault and Godyne Sibay, Managing Partner, Ontario Region, McCarthy Tétrault.

This event is part of our Inclusion Now programming.
