Braiding Diversity into Justice – Ottawa Region

For many young people, women and gender diverse youth in particular, a career in law may feel out of their reach. Braiding Diversity into Justice and other OJEN career modelling programs help young people of all backgrounds “see themselves in law” by introducing them to legal professionals with whom they share similar experiences. The goal of these programs is to show that there is a place for everyone in the legal profession regardless of socio-economic status, disability, migration, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, ethnicity, or religion.

In Ottawa, OJEN’s Ottawa Committee presents this program, which showcases a variety of legal professionals, emphasizing the different careers in justice and the non-linear pathways to reach them.
