As one of the world’s largest law firms, with more than 4,500 lawyers located in more than 40 countries throughout the Americas, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific, DLA Piper is made up of individuals who bring their own cultures, backgrounds and experiences to work. We embrace and value the diversity of our people in ways that are inclusive and meaningful.
The result is a legal environment rich with collaborative thought, insight, and talent that DLA Piper is proud to impart to its clients. DLA Piper recognizes that, by fostering strong values within its workplaces, in its business practices, and in its D&I initiatives, the firm can have a positive and lasting impact in the communities in which we live and work.
As part of our meaningful D&I initiatives, DLA Piper Canada is proud to team up with Women+Power, an organization dedicated to creating a more diverse and inclusive power industry, and to provide opportunities to connect with, support, inspire and recognize each other to empower women to achieve their full potential both professionally and personally.
Since formally launching over a year ago, Women+Power has become a prominent voice in the industry. DLA Piper is proud to be part of the community initiatives created by Women+Power as it works towards transformational change. DLA Piper’s Katrina Edgerton-McGhan and Patrick Roche have been avid supporters of Women+Power with Katrina Edgerton-McGhan serving as the Chair of the Board. Women+Power has provided a number of seminars on timely D&I matters. Recently, Heather Treacy, Q.C. and Katrina Edgerton-McGhan chaired a wellness seminar (“Building Resilience in a Pandemic”) focussing on pandemic mental health, in partnership with the Canadian Mental Health Association.
Women+Power will be prominent at this Fall’s conference of the Independent Power Producers Society of Alberta (“IPPSA”), the yearly gathering of all key market participants in Alberta’s power industry.
DLA Piper Canada’s title sponsorship and active involvement with Women+Power is an innovative way to partner with clients for social good.
If you are interested in this strategic D&I initiative, which is supported by many of our clients, please contact Heather Treacy, Q.C., Katrina Edgerton-McGhan or Patrick Roche for more information on how to get involved in this expanding initiative. Membership is free and open to any DLA Piper lawyer or interested client or service provider.
