October 15, 2021 – LEAF Ottawa invites you to attend “From Personhood to Equality“, a virtual panel discussing the history of struggle for gender equality within the legal profession.

The panel will take place from 6:30pm to 8pm ET on Monday, October 18, 2021. Register today!

Nationwide, LEAF is changing its flagship event from Persons Day (the day on which women were legally recognized as persons) to Equality Day (the day section 15 of the Charter came into force).

The theme for this year’s panel will be “From Personhood to Equality”. Join LEAF Ottawa as they host a virtual discussion examining how the long and difficult struggle for gender equality has historically excluded BIPOC women and gender-diverse people.

LEAF Ottawa is pleased to be joined by Erin Durant and Danielle Bisnar, two prominent lawyers who will speak to their experiences navigating this type of exclusion throughout their legal careers, in their respective fields.

Please note that this event is free to attend – LEAF Ottawa hopes to *virtually* see you there!
