Today, on International Women’s Day, FACL BC celebrates the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women and girls, here in British Columbia and around the world. We honour all those who stand up for gender and racial equality, in big and small ways. We also affirm our commitment to advocating for gender equality and uplifting the voices of Asian women in the legal community.
However, this year’s International Women’s Day theme, #EmbraceEquity, reminds us all that equal opportunities aren't enough. People start from different places, so true inclusion and belonging require equitable action. Learn more about the difference between equity and equality here.
We also encourage you to explore our resource list that highlights the voices and work of Asian women in the legal profession: Amplifying Asian Women in Law: A FACL BC International Women’s Day Resource List.
