Lisa R. Lifshitz was quoted by the Canadian Bar Association's National Magazine on championing diversity in legal tech.


 

The Canadian Technology Law Association (Can-Tech) wants to increase diversity in the tech sector. Its working group released a report earlier this year with five recommendations on improving diversity and inclusion in tech law: adopting an overarching diversity statement; collecting demographic data; ensuring diversity is represented at its board level through through new policies; implementing panel diversity policies; and continual diversity and inclusion assessments.

"We recognize that we need to evolve," says Lisa R. Lifshitz, a partner at Torkin Manes, a past-President of Can-Tech and a member of its Diversity and Inclusion Working Group. "The tech industry is all about being fresh and pushing forward. [The working group] agreed that we need to change people's mindsets and make our organization reflect changes in the sector and our society."
