Toronto. March 7, 2023. For the 11th consecutive year, McCarthy Tétrault has been named one of Canada's Best Diversity Employers. This accolade acknowledges the firm's ongoing commitment to build an inclusive workplace where everyone is treated fairly and respectfully, has equal access to opportunities and resources, and can contribute to the firm's success.

"The work our Inclusion Now office does to support diversity and inclusion has transformed our firm on every level, and allowed us to take measurable steps to address inequities in our own workplace, the profession and the communities we serve," said Dave Leonard, CEO of McCarthy Tétrault. "I am inspired by the number of our people who actively support our Inclusion Now Action Groups, internal and external programs, and pro bono and volunteer initiatives. This honour would not be possible without them."

Launched in 2019, McCarthy Tétrault's award-winning Inclusion Now program is led by Charlene Theodore, a full-time Chief Inclusion Officer who guides the firm's plan to take corporate citizenship to the next level. Inclusion Now informs every aspect of the firm and is dedicated to fostering diversity, inclusion and corporate social responsibility in support of its members, clients, the legal profession, as well as the broader community.
