Braiding Diversity into Justice 2019

On Tuesday, November 5th, 2019, women in Waterloo Region’s legal community will offer a day-long program for high school girls interested in law.  Braiding Diversity into Justice is an initiative of the Ontario Justice Education Network (OJEN), organized by the Waterloo Region OJEN Committee

Local law firms and the Waterloo Region Police Service have partnered to create a unique educational experience for young women from communities under-represented in the legal profession.  40 girls from local high schools will meet with women employed in a variety of legal professions including judges, lawyers, police officers, bail supervisors, probation officers and others.

The day begins at the Waterloo Region Courthouse. The program includes panel discussions, career information, tips for succeeding in law school, a courthouse tour and a visit to a local law firm. 

Registration for Braiding Diversity into Justice opens October 1st and continues throughout October.  Teachers in the Waterloo area may refer up to four students per class for the activity.  To register, young women in the Waterloo region between 16 and 20 may register for the event starting on October 1st.  For more information and to register, click here.
