    In-House Panel 

    Join YWL as we learn all about life in-house! Moderated by Vivian Kung, Partner, Blake, Cassels & Graydon LLP, a panel of five in-house lawyers in their first ten years of call will discuss their experience working in-house. Themes will include: pros and cons of in-house positions; how to get an in-house position; how to move up in the company as in-house counsel; the challenges that women may face in smaller in-house departments where they are the only lawyer or the only female lawyer; and best practices for dealing with in-house counsel. 

    Meet the panel: Mariana Fonar, Legal Counsel and Corporate Secretary at Lift & Co; Stephanie King, Manager, Legal Claims Department at Intact; Amanda Meadows, Corporate Counsel at Freshii; Jess Spindler, Director of Legal Affairs for the Liberal Party of Canada; and Jessica Andary, Director, Recovery and Resolution Planning, Group Risk Management at the Royal Bank of Canada.

    The Heller Group presents...
    The 9th Annual Young Women in Law Charity Gala

    Please join YWL and The Heller Group for an evening of networking and fun in support of a worthy cause!

    YWL is thrilled to announce that MICHELE ROMANOW will be the keynote speaker at this year’s event.

    Michele Romanow is a Canadian tech titan, engineer and a serial entrepreneur who started five companies before her 33rd birthday. She is the co-founder of Clearbanc, Buytopia.ca and SnapSaves (acq by Groupon), and currently stars as the youngest Dragon on CBC’s Dragons’ Den. Michele was ranked on WXN’s Top 100 – Canada’s Most Powerful Women and was the only Canadian featured on Forbes’ “Millennials on a Mission” list. Michele is a prolific angel investor and the winner of Angel Investor of the Year award. She co-founded the Canadian Entrepreneurship Initiative with Richard Branson to encourage entrepreneurship. Michele is passionate about building technology companies and drives to lead and grown successful ventures.

    The proceeds of this year’s Gala will go to SHAD, a charity that runs an enrichment & entrepreneurship program for youth who want to bring about real, positive change. High school students attend a month-long STEAM-based (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) program at host universities and become part of SHAD's impressive, ever-growing network (including 32 Rhodes Scholars, 56 Schulich Leaders and 88 Loran Scholars).
