Women now constitute nearly half of all practicing lawyers in Canada, but the business model of most Canadian law firms has not evolved to reflect this significant social change. Not achieving gender parity is attributed to many factors. And these challenges and barriers are driving women from the legal workforce.
With baby boomers getting set to retire in droves, the legal profession needs to change how it attracts and retains this 50% of their potential workforce.
Join Janis Criger, Suzanne Deliscar and Mary Lou Dingle as they discuss challenges they have faced in the course of their legal careers, how they have overcome them, and give advice for young lawyers and firms to ensure that they can attract and keep top talent — both men and women.
