Come to the Women Lawyers Forum on June 12 to learn about gender impact

Join the Ontario Bar Association (OBA) Women on Monday June 12 at 6-7:30. I wish I could be there! Sign up here. Here is the blurb:

Why is it that men who yell are “passionate” and “powerful”, but women who raise their voices “screech”, “nag”, and “get hysterical”? Why are women criticized for saying “sorry”, but men aren’t criticized for interrupting? In Women Lawyers Forum’s second installment of its Empowering Women series, our expert panel explore the impact of gender on communication. Do men and women really speak a different language, or is it just perception or stereotype? And is any one style of expression the “best” style for advancing your career? Our panel of powerhouse female professionals will share their view of how gender and communication interplay in all areas of law. Gain insight into how to leverage your own style and make yourself heard.

Here is the amazing panel: Daniella Murynka, Ricketts Harris LLP, Justice Frances Kiteley, Ontario Superior Court of Justice Elizabeth Hunt, Founder, Hunt Communication Lynn McGrade, Partner, Borden Ladner Gervais LLP Julia Shin Doi, General Counsel and Secretary Board of Governors of Ryerson University, Nandi Deterville, Barrister and Solicitor Anna Wong, Landy Marr Kats LLP.
