2020 has brought many challenges and opportunities to our community. As a result, our 10th anniversary celebrations originally scheduled for this fall have been postponed, but we will celebrate our achievements over the past 10 years and the recognition of the amazing women in our community this fall.
The Women in Law Leadership – Stronger Together Award will honour the outstanding contributions of women lawyers across Canada.
This award will recognize and celebrate women lawyers from each province and territory who are:
- demonstrating extraordinary leadership in a cause which has positively impacted their communities;
- developing and promoting initiatives that contribute to the well-being and betterment of their communities;
- blazing a trail in the areas of legal education and/or scholarship; equity, diversity and inclusion; service through Pro Bono initiatives or service to other community organizations.
Nominees must be a member in good standing of a Canadian Law Society, can be practicing or non-practicing; working in private practice, in-house, government, education, or in the not-for-profit sector; and can be of any year of call.
