Conversations with Racialized Lawyers

Conversations With The President: Raising The Bar on Inclusion, Ep 4:

In this episode, Ray meets Charlene Theodore, 2nd Vice-President of the Ontario Bar Association, who is the first black woman to occupy this position. He also meets with David A Curry, Crown Attorney in Digby, Nova Scotia, to discuss his experience as a black and Mi’kmaq lawyer.

Charlene and David are young lawyers hoping to change the face of the law in their communities. They talk privilege, mental health, leadership development for racialized lawyers, the climate for a black lawyer in Nova Scotia, and being disrespected by court staff because they look different from the dominant group.
