Event Overview

Session Title: Workplace EDI & Allyship Lived Experience

This presentation by Dr. Hadiya Roderique will highlight some of the challenges and key biases that diverse individuals face in the workplace, from hiring to evaluation and promotion. The presentation will also focus on actionable ways to address these bias challenges. Hadiya draws on cutting edge research and studies to illustrate and work through solutions using an intersectional lens.

The presentation will also focus on the impact and cost of subtle and overt discrimination in the workplace, the power of allyship, and how to be a better ally.

Topics include how fear gets in the way of allyship, change and growth, what privilege and anti-racism actually means, and a discussion of how to talk about race and bias in a constructive way.

PMAC has applied to have this event accredited by the Law Society of Ontario for Equality, Diversity & Inclusion (EDI) Professionalism hours. Attendees will be notified as to the status and success of this application.

Lawyers’ Network: Lawyers are also invited to register below to join the Lawyers’ Network breakout discussions following the webinar at 3:15 PM.

PMAC has applied for CPD accreditation, including ED (Equality, Diversity & Inclusion) accreditation in Ontario for this breakout.
