Osler is proud to take a leading role in supporting and promoting diversity within our firm, in the legal industry and in our communities. As an extension of this commitment, Osler is proud to have sponsored and participated in the Federation of Asian Canadian Lawyers BC (FACL BC)’s in-house committee’s Behind the Curtain: Working In-House event on September 30.

The in-house committee is the first of its kind for FACL and is founded by Steven Ngo, Senior Counsel (Visier), Osler alumni and former member of Osler’s Diversity Committee. Richard Wong, Chair of Osler’s Construction Group, provided opening remarks and discussed the synergies between Osler’s Asia-Pacific Affinity Network (APAN) and FACL.

The virtual event was held via Zoom and featured lawyers who shared their experiences, advice, and myths about working in-house for a wide range of companies. It had over 70 attendees, including law students, private practice and in-house lawyers. This collaboration continues to strengthen APAN’s support of FACL chapters across Canada, including FACL BC, and further opens up new opportunities for outreach activities in British Columbia. 

Osler respects that each individual is unique, and we recognize, welcome and celebrate these individual differences. Led by our Diversity Committee, we actively participate in a wide range of diversity initiatives to create real and lasting change, either through internal firm programs or in collaboration with our clients.
