Harper Grey Receives the Canadian Law Award for Diversity Initiative of the Year for Life in Law

May 24, 2022

We are very excited to announce that Life in Law (LiL) has been named the recipient of the 2022 Bereskin & Parr Award for Diversity Initiative of the Year by the Canadian Law Awards!

This award is judged on the concrete steps a law firm or law department took during 2021 to promote diversity and inclusion in the legal profession and is open to all Canada-based law firms and law departments. Hundreds of nominations were received from firms and legal departments across Canada.

We’d like to take a moment to recognize and applaud the other finalists in this category for their fantastic contributions to the profession – Borden Ladner Gervais LLP, Dentons Canada LLP, Airs & Berlis LLP, and TD Bank.

Powered by Harper Grey, Life in Law was co-founded by two Harper Grey Partners, Una Radoja and Kim Jakeman, with the goal of reducing the exodus of women from the legal profession, by providing them with opportunities to raise issues they face in a confidential environment.

Since its inception, Life in Law has evolved to provide support to women across Canada through online chat, phone support and the Dear LiL Blog.

“Harper Grey supports the advancement of women at all levels of the legal profession,” comments Harper Grey Managing Partner, Jonathan Meadows. “For many years, we were proud to lead the way when it came to inclusion of women in the workplace. And we continue to lead because we know that only by example and innovation can we effect change. Life in Law is the perfect example of just that – we have been so pleased to be a part of this incredible initiative and to continue to support all women as they balance life with their legal careers.”
