Presentation by: Deborah Green

Justice is a key area highlighted in the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action. While diversity and inclusion has started to garner more attention in the Legal sector in recent months, the topic of Indigenous inclusion in law has yet to gain significant traction. Within this discussion is not only the question of how to increase representation in the workforce but also how to foster a stronger understanding of Indigenous cultures and worldview within legal environments. This introductory webinar will briefly discuss Indigenous worldview, debunk some myths about Indigenous peoples in Canada, and provide some data on promising practices legal firms are exhibiting in working toward Indigenous inclusion.
