Women’s Committee

Raising the bar for racialized women lawyers and legal professionals

Description:

Following the mandate of FACL Ontario to be a “diverse coalition of Asian Canadian legal professionals working to promote equity, justice, and opportunity for Asian Canadian legal professionals and the wider community,” the Women’s Committee in particular supports and advances racialized women legal professionals. 

 

Goals:

We create a safe, inclusive and interactive environment to share and build greater awareness of the issues, challenges, and opportunities facing racialized women legal professionals.

We inspire and celebrate our members, provide role models, and build a sense of community among racialized women legal professionals.  

We foster systemic change, support intersectionality among all equity-seeking groups, and provide opportunities to give back to the wider community.  

 

Co-Chairs:

Carissa Wong (Chair)

Michelle Seto (Vice Chair)
