A Panel Discussion with Gender Equality Advocates

In celebration of International Women’s Day we hope you can join us on Thursday, March 11th, for a dynamic panel discussion with Canadian leaders who work tirelessly to create more inclusive workplaces, communities and spaces.

This engaging discussion will focus on the significant impact the past 12 months has had on women, including those who face intersectional barriers, and how all of us as community and business leaders; and as individuals, can take the important steps to build back better, together.

Our panel includes:

· Paulette Senior, President & CEO of the Canadian Women’s Foundation,

· Vandana Juneja, Executive Director of Catalyst Canada

· Dave Leonard, Chief Executive Officer and Partner at McCarthy Tétrault

· Miranda Lam, Partner at McCarthy Tetrault and Chair of our National Gender Equality Action Group
