The South Asian Bar Association of British Columbia is pleased to present Women of Colour in Law: A Panel Discussion.
In spite of equal numbers of women and men entering the legal profession every year, women lag far behind men in attaining equity partnerships and leadership positions. Women of colour face an additional hurdle attaining such positions. Join our informative conversation and hear from our panel of South Asian women who have successfully broken the glass ceilings that exist for women of colour within the legal profession. The panelists will share their own insights, stories and advice about practicing law as a woman of colour from their lived experiences. The moderated panel will be followed by a Q&A session with the panelists.
This event will take place on April 29, 2021 from 5:30pm PST to 6:30pm PST via zoom and features a panel consisting of:
- Radha Curpen, Managing Partner of the Vancouver office of Bennett Jones LLP;
- Bal Girn, Senior Crown Counsel at the Public Prosecution Service of Canada;
- Navnit Duhra, Lawyer in the Business Law and Transactions Group at Miller Titerle + Company; and
- Tharani Balachandran, Legal Counsel with the Central Services Group of the Ministry of the Attorney General BC.
The panel will be moderated by SABABC member Manroop Ghuman of Blake, Cassels & Graydon LLP.
SABABC invites its members and the public to attend this important discussion. This event is approved for 1 hour of CPD credit from the Law Society of British Columbia.
