Diversity and Inclusion

SV Law recognizes that there are distinct demographic groups within our organization, the legal industry and society as a whole that have long been disadvantaged. We are committed to combating discrimination in all its forms.  We recognize that a diverse and inclusive workforce with wide perspectives and creative ideas benefits out clients, our colleagues, and the communities where we operate. SV Law is committed to creating a diverse, inclusive and respectful environment where all team members can contribute to their full potential.

We are committed to a framework for change within the legal profession that embraces a vision of diversity and inclusion. We have and will continue to implement strategies, policies, and procedures inspired by that vision. We will continuously improve through an ongoing process of evaluation and change.”

    Black North

    Led by The Canadian Council of Business Leaders Against Anti-Black Systemic Racism, The BlackNorth Initiative is on a mission to end anti-Black systemic racism throughout all aspects of our lives by utilizing a business-first mindset. We believe that if corporate Canada can boldly take on the challenge to add gender diversity to Canadian boardrooms and executive suites by declaring policies, setting specific targets, and holding itself accountable, it can do the same work to create better representation for Black Canadians.
