Braiding Diversity into Justice

The goal of the “Braiding Diversity into Justice” event is to connect young women, who are marginalized and/or racialized, with members of the legal sector in order to motivate and empower them. We hope to inspire these young women of diverse backgrounds, and to help them feel confident in their ability to become successful legal/justice sector professionals.

On November 2018, OJEN ran a full-day event that introduced young women, ages 16 to 20 in Waterloo Region to women working in law.

Braiding Diversity into Justice 2019 will take place on Tuesday, November 5, 2019 at at the Waterloo Region Courthouse, 85 Frederick Street, Kitchener, ON
