The Equality Committee works to raise awareness of equality in the legal profession.

Working with CBA groups and other organizations, we monitor the current status of equality and diversity, and develop resources to help eliminate discrimination and achieve diversity. The Committee also oversees the implementation of equality-related resolutions adopted by CBA Council – and much more.

The Committee members work closely with Equality Committee representatives in CBA branches and with Conferences representing equality-seeking groups.

The CBA engages in ongoing consultations with member firms and connects with other organizations in the equality community in the US and Canada. We also conduct ongoing environmental scanning to ensure that the CBA is on the cutting edge of equality, diversity and inclusion issues.
