On behalf of Fasken Martineau, the Fasken Martineau Pride Network invites you to our June pride month launch with a panel of three legal experts and a leading community educator and advocate providing insight on issues facing the modern Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (“LGBT”) family. From surrogacy and legal parentage, to workplace LGBT parental rights, to ensuring spousal inheritance, our panel will touch on some of today’s most pressing topics for those in the LGBT community, their allies, and their employers.

Join us for an informative discussion, and stay with us afterwards for our reception as we celebrate pride and our shared diversity. Please share this invitation freely with your company’s diversity or LGBT committee/employee resource group, and any colleagues who may be interested in attending, whether they identify as members of the LGBT community, are LGBT allies, are human resources professionals or in community or corporate leadership, or otherwise! RSVP early as space is limited!
