    The difference between a manager and a leader

    Mar 11, 2019

    Leading a law firm is a difficult task. It requires expert legal knowledge, business acumen and people skills. These aspects of the job require different skills and the ability to bring all three into a unified perspective. This can be done by fully understanding both your role as a leader and your organizational purpose, and these will act as a focusing lens as you move your organization forward.

    On privilege and acting with integrity

    Mar 6, 2019

    Jody Wilson-Raybould’s testimony to the House of Commons Justice Committee gives the in-house legal community an opportunity for a healthy discussion about some key common themes. It reinforces the in-house counsel’s connection to the rule of law. It reminds us of the importance of independent thought, truth telling, having the courage to act with integrity and the ability to navigate difficult relationship demands and issues of importance to our clients. This is a valuable opportunity and a valuable story. In light of solicitor-client privilege, in-house lawyers are rarely permitted to share their perspectives and these kinds of stories.

    Scandal and matriarchy: How Jody Wilson-Raybould makes me want to be a better lawyer

    Mar 4, 2019

    There were so many standout moments from Jody Wilson-Raybould’s testimony before the House of Commons Justice Committee on Feb. 27. But, for me, one line stood out the most: “I come from a long line of matriarchs and I am a truth teller in accordance with the laws and traditions of our Big House — this is who I am and who I will always be.”

    Our common struggle: celebrating women in governance

    Mar 4, 2019

    On Feb. 20, I attended the Women in Governance Annual Recognition Gala. This was a celebration of public companies that made a commitment and achieved at least 30 per cent female representation within their boards. It was inspirational to hear about the shared experiences and the strategic business decisions that drove these companies to make a commitment to actively promote equity within their governance board.
