WLMP and #LawNeedsFeminismBecause Announce Official Collaboration

The Women’s Legal Mentorship Program is proud to announce that we will be collaborating with the #LawNeedsFeminismBecause 2017 campaign. Both organizations share the goals of improving gender equality and diversity in the law, as well as the retention of women in the profession. WLMP is excited about the partnership and the opportunity to continue the conversation about and spark change in feminism and the law.

The McGill-based campaign, led by Rachel Kohut, expands nationally this year. The #LNFB team will host a national conference at McGill in March 2017 during the week of International Women’s Day. imageLaw faculties across Canada will simultaneously run their own campus campaigns that will include the signature #LNFB photo project, along with other local events.

At the conference in March, WLMP will lead an interactive workshop on feminist mentorship. The WLMP University of Ottawa chapter is teaming up with the #LNFB uOttawa Organizing Committee to lead the campaign on campus. #LNFB will be represented at the WLMP Legal Leaders Breakfast on September 30, 2016 in Ottawa to kick off the joint campaign.

The #LNFB uOttawa Organizing Committee is led by uOttawa law students Pauline Vengeroff, Marie-Charlotte Beaudry, Zaynab Al-Waadh and Sarah Quayyum. For information about the uOttawa #LNFB campaign, contact Zaynab Al-Waadh zalwa081@uottawa.ca
