FACL BC's Annual Women's Social

  • 10 Jun 2021
  • 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM
  • Zoom


FACL BC is excited to host our 3rd annual Women’s Social! Join us for a fun and casual event to connect with your fellow women in law.

The event will start with speeches from special guests that will speak on topics pertaining to the experiences of Asian-Canadian female lawyers. The second part of the event is the socializing: we will divide into small breakout rooms to mingle, chat, and share stories. Each breakout room will include a VIP guest, an esteemed senior lawyer who is available if you have questions about their career trajectories.

To help everyone get to know each other more and for everyone to have a way to connect even after the event is complete, answers provided during registration will be compiled in one PDF that will be shared with all registrants before the event.

All registrants will be entered into a draw for gift cards supporting women-owned businesses.
