WeirFoulds Women

The WeirFoulds Women Committee (“WFW”) promotes a positive and diverse working environment by hosting events and organizing initiatives that cover topical legal, business, and social issues. The committee’s recent activities include: annual International Women’s’ Day celebrations and Celebrating the Women of WeirFoulds Awards; internal mentoring dinners and community-based partnerships; social media initiatives such as #WomenCrushWednesday to highlight women talent at the firm; and various client facing events that combine education, networking, and opportunities to meet local women business leaders.

Co-chaired by Lisa Danay Wallace and Marie-Pier Nadeau, the committee consists of a group of firm members including Anna Alizadeh, Abby Benattar, Janet Bobechko, Patricia Chehadé, Ellen Dalicandro, Lorraine M. Fleck, Katrina Henn, Lori Isaj, Dana Kriszenfeld, Megan Mah, Hayley Peglar, Janice Philteos, Emma Romano, Natalia Sidlar, Abbey Sinclair, Christina Tereshyn, Kayla Theeuwen, Agatha Wong and some of our current summer and articling students.

As part of the WFW mission statement, we aim to advance and empower women in various skill sets to benefit every aspect of their professional and personal lives, all while promoting a diverse, inclusive, and professional workplace.
