Access to Insolvency Services Among Racialized and Minority Communities [WEBCAST ONLY] 

3 déc. 2020

OBA Insolvency Law PROGRAM | 3:00 PM to 4:30 PM (ET)

Diversity, equity and inclusion in the insolvency law profession is a crucial and multifaceted topic. Racialized and minority communities experience different levels of access to insolvency services and professionals, and this program is intended to explore why that is so, as well as ways it can be effectively changed to ensure equal access to the profession for clients and diverse lawyers alike. Join our experienced faculty at this program, where through a panel discussion on three primary themes, we work to better understand questions such as:

  • How are racialized and minority communities impacted differently in their ability to benefit from insolvency laws?
  • How is the experience of racialized and minority communities in insolvency proceedings different as a result of their racialized or minority status?
  • What can we do as professionals in the industry to increase access and provide more effective service to communities such as these?
