It is a little bittersweet that today is my last day as President of the Women’s Law Association of Ontario.
And my last official duty is hosting the 2020 WLAO Virtual Awards Gala tonight. https://wlao.on.ca/pec-events/2020_awards/
It has been an amazing two years of encouraging, empowering, advocating for and advancing women in the legal profession. We also celebrated WLAO’s 100th Anniversary in 2019. Wow – here is to another 100!
I have met incredible women, trailblazers and leaders of the legal community, and have developed many lasting friendships.
But, it isn’t over really, I now take on the role of Past President for the next two years, and I am very excited to kick off our Advisory Council made up of Past Presidents, lifetime members and long time supporters of the WLAO!
We have so much still to do in creating a legal profession free of discrimination and racism, and I will continue to empower, advance and champion women in the legal profession!
Congratulations Jennifer on taking on the role of President for the next two years and I look forward to continuing to work together!
