How To Be An Effective Ally

Monday, June 21, 2021
3:00 - 4:30 PM

Koren Lightning-Earle, Dr. Chidinma Thompson & Dr. Farha Shariff
Moderated by Marta Caufield, Sania Chaudhry & Sandy Gill

This 1.5-hour panel discussion is presented in partnership between the Women in Law Leadership Awards and the CBA Alberta Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Committee. Join us in welcoming Dr. Chidinma Thompson, Dr. Farha Shariff and Koren Lightning-Earle, who will have a frank discussion about their lived experiences and allyship. Participants will learn what allyship is, how to move beyond performative allyship, how to be an effective ally, what is not effective allyship, and the obstacles preventing effective allyship (and how to overcome them). Participants will be given the opportunity to ask questions of the speakers about how to be an effective ally. Participants will leave prepared and confident with the tools and skills to become better allies to diverse members of the legal profession.

Women in Law Leadership is a Canada not-for-profit corporation dedicated to celebrating and advancing women in the law through recognition and education. Its roots date back to 2009 with the creation of the Women in Law Leadership Awards, co-founded by The Counsel Network and the Association of Women Lawyers. Since then, the organizations has expanded the WILL Awards across the country and has created an education certification program for women lawyers.
