NationalMagazine.ca quotes Toronto lawyer Andrew Alleyne in an article on diversity in the legal tech industry.
Can-Tech's new panel diversity policy requires at least one diverse panelist for each panel. "People are well-meaning, but if we don't have policies to check what we're doing, things will not change," says Andrew Alleyne, a partner at Fasken and Vice President of Can-Tech Law. "Within the first few days of release, we had volunteers offer to help us find diverse panelists for our conference and other events and to serve on our diversity committee. It's vital that we capitalize on this discussion and bring more diverse lawyers into and to the forefront of tech law."
