FACL 11th Annual Conference

Raj Anand
8:00 a.m. - 9:00 p.m.
Toronto Region Board of Trade, First Canadian Place, Toronto, ON

WeirFoulds Partner Raj Anand will moderate a discussion on the topic, "Advancing Equality, Diversity and Inclusion" at the Federation of Asian Canadian Lawyers' 11th Annual Conference.

In 2012, Raj was appointed Chair of the Law Society's Working Group on Challenges faced by Racialized Lawyers and Paralegals. On December 2, 2016, the Law Society voted to adopt the recommendations of the Working Group.

The recommendations included requiring legal workplaces develop a human rights/diversity policy, asking inclusion questions of licensees and publishing an inclusion index for all legal workplaces of at least 25 licensees, and including topics of cultural competency and equity in the licensing process. Almost one year has passed. How are legal workplaces—big, medium, and small—faring under this new regime? How is the implementation of these recommendations going on the ground level?

This panelists will discuss these issues within the broader context of equity and inclusion in the legal profession.
