Calling all FACL members in any or all colours of the rainbow! Join us at our 2SLGBTQIA+ Mixer on 23 rd July 2024 as we celebrate diversity and inclusion with pride, gaiety, and some warm summer sunshine (fingers crossed!). We are proud to announce we will also be joined by Scott Morishita, President of the Canadian Bar Association, BC Branch, who will be engaging with attendees in a fireside chat (hosted by FACL BC Director and Advocacy Committee Co-Chair, David How), followed by a casual mixer at Hammerco Lawyers’ rooftop patio. 

Scott Morishita is associate counsel at Rice Harbut Elliott LLP, a boutique Vancouver litigation firm that represents plaintiffs in personal injury and class action lawsuits. He is the president of the CBABC for the 2023-24 term and is the first openly gay racialized lawyer to hold that position. Apart from being a proud member of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community, Scott devotes time outside practice volunteering in the community, mentoring young lawyers and advocating for lawyers’ mental health and wellbeing. His contributions to the profession and beyond more than encapsulate the meaning of “Leading with Pride”, and we cannot wait to learn from him and share some food, drinks and good times with you all! 

This event is open to all folks but, in an effort to create a safe and inclusive space for the 2SLGBTQIA+ and Asian community, we ask that allies attend in-person for the mixer only to the extent that they are there to support a member of the community.

Please note that this is a complimentary event. Please update your RSVP if you plans change as a courtesy to our sponsor. Failure to do so without explanation, or repeated no-shows at free FACL BC events, may affect your attendance status and future registrations at events where catering is arranged.
