Survey on Navigating Leave, New Parenthood and Return to Work – By FACL Women’s Committee and Cassels Brock & Blackwell LLP 

Are you considering being or have you been a new parent?  Do you identify as an Asian-Canadian in the Ontario legal profession?  We want to hear from you!  Let us know how becoming a parent has or has not affected your legal career, and what you think can be done to improve the new parenthood experiences of Asian-Canadian legal professionals.  The information gathered from this survey will be shared completely anonymously with upper-level management and hiring teams in the legal profession to help improve the experiences for new parents.  
Please consider completing and sharing this survey widely with others.  To thank those who participate, your contact information, if voluntarily provided, will be added to the draw for a year’s worth of David’s Tea ($100 gift certificate)!  All personal information will be completely confidential and answers completely anonymous. Please click here to complete the survey.
