"I have benefitted from the strong, collegial and supportive female leadership at our Firm that has provided invaluable mentorship and positively impacted my career. The guidance and commitment from these role models has provided me with the confidence and ability to bring my own unique perspective and viewpoint to the table."

Rummy Basra, Former Partner, Corporate Practice

"We strive to build a firm that reflects diversity, not only to attract lawyers and staff who are the best at what they do, but to provide our clients with the benefit of the diversity of viewpoints and experiences that our professionals offer."

Douglas Rienzo, Former Chair, Osler’s Diversity Committee

"Osler’s ongoing presence has not only helped to de-mystify the corporate law career path, but has built confidence in lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer students by personifying and celebrating the diversity of one of Canada’s leading legal employers."
