In-House Departments & Law Firms Driving Diversity & Inclusion Together: More Than Just Talk

Diversity and inclusion have been a topic of discussion between in-house counsel and law firms for many years now; however, action and results have been slower to materialize. Generously sponsored by McCarthy Tétrault, this webinar is an open discussion on obstacles and successes, sharing the results of one organization's internal survey of law firms, and introducing a new tool all in-house counsel can use to achieve real action.

Speakers include Julia Shin Doi, General Counsel and Secretary of the Board of Governors at Ryerson University; Charlene Theodore, Counsel at the Ontario English Catholic Teachers’ Association; Nikki Gershbain, Chief Inclusion Officer at McCarthy Tétrault; Thomas Kim, Chief Legal Officer and Company Secretary at Thomson Reuters; Matthew Peters, National Innovation Leader at McCarthy Tétrault.

Failure: Getting Comfortable with the “F” Word 

2020 has put many of us to the test. We have had to learn to adapt to new work environments, volatile markets, rapidly evolving societal influences and constantly changing business imperatives. We are learning to live with less social interaction and daily monitoring of health trends and recommendations to follow. All of this can lead to a sense of overwhelm and possible “just getting by”—or worse: failing. Can we get comfortable with failure as an integral part of who we are? Join Ashley Good, founder of Fail Forward, the world’s first failure consultancy, for the interactive workshop.
