In November 2017, Hadiya Roderique's article «Black on Bay Street» sent shockwaves through the Toronto legal community, drawing attention to the continued barriers that individuals from diverse socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds continue to face when beginning their legal careers. At this conference we will discuss the steps that Canadian firms must take to not just attract diverse talent, but to retain and integrate those perspectives within the fabric of their firm. Specifically, we will address the unique challenges to advancement and promotion faced by those outside the traditional norm, and how firms can create cultures where individuals from diverse backgrounds can embrace, rather than suppress, their identities.

Panel Discussion (10:00 AM — 12:00 PM):
Hadiya Roderique — Journalist, Speaker, PhD Candidate, Rotman School of Management
Laleh Moshiri — National Director of Diversity and Inclusion, BLG LLP
Anita Anand — Professor of Law and JR Kimber Chair in Investor Protection and Corporate Governance, UToronto Faculty of Law
Nafisah Chowdhury — Partner, Miller Thompson LLP

Lunch (12:00 PM — 12:30 PM)

Keynote address (12:30 PM — 2:00 PM):
Anver Emon — Professor of Law and History, UToronto Faculty of Law; Director, Institute of Islamic Studies
