SABA Toronto invites you to join us for a roundtable, cross-practice discussion on COVID-19 as a women’s issue on November 30 at 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM. This pandemic has altered the way we live our lives in so many ways. However, in many other aspects it has brought discrimination and systemic imbalances to the fore. In particular, COVID-19 has disproportionately impacted women, from the economy to caregiving responsibilities, from our clients to lawyers themselves. This candid discussion will be part of an ongoing effort from SABA this year to find more ways to support our female-identifying members. We encourage you to join this conversation and bring your voices to the table.
