“It has been a true privilege to partner with Fasken to create the ICON Fasken Scholarship to support incoming Black and Indigenous law students in Canada,” said Derrick Raphael, Co-Founder & CEO of ICON Talent Partners. “As a former Fasken employee, I know the outstanding workplace culture and support system that they will be joining at the Firm.
