Recording Release – Celebrating Women in the Legal Community

In honour of International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month, our associate lawyers, Michelle Mulchan, Margie Primero-Pimentel & Kimberly Paynter, hosted a panel discussion earlier this month called Celebrating Women in the Legal Community. The aim of the presentation was to celebrate the triumphs and progress women have contributed to the legal community while acknowledging the challenges that are still faced.

The panelists discussed:

1. Having Children

2. Maternity Leave

3. Sole Practitioners

4. Female Lawyers in the Workplace

5. Judges

6. Mental Health Resources

7. What do we do about it?
