Equity and Equality

March 14 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

As employers compete for talent, a sound understanding of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion is critical to attracting and retaining skilled employees. This webinar will help attendees understand the difference between equity and equality, how to identify unconscious bias and microaggressions that negatively impact the workplace, and elements to include in their workplace DEI policy.

He also provided counsel on the restructuring of private and public sector companies, and worked extensively with First Nations organizations.

Dorian provides counsel to employers and employees on all areas of employment law, including employment contracts, wrongful dismissals, workplace policies, employment standards, human rights in the workplace, and workplace investigations. He has more than 12 years of experience conducting complex investigations in both the private and public sector including allegations of racial discrimination, harassment, mobbing, sexual harassment and violence.

Dorian graduated from Osgoode Hall Law School and was Called to the Ontario Bar in 2006. He is frequently invited to speak at seminars hosted by the Law Society of Ontario and was recently on a panel of experts helping lawyers identify legal issues with respect to workplace investigations. Dorian completed his investigation training at Reid Associates and has completed additional training on conducting interviews using an anti-oppression lens and alternate dispute resolution through Stitt Feld Handy.
