ReferToHer & LEAF Team Up in Fight for Gender Equity

Lenczner Slaght is proud to announce that ReferToHer™ will once again partner with the Women’s Legal Education & Action Fund (LEAF) as the exclusive matching donor for their largest Giving Tuesday fundraiser to date.

On Tuesday, November 28, 2023, we will be matching up to $15,000 of all donations made to LEAF to aid in their important work towards ensuring the substantive equality of women, girls, trans, and non-binary people across Canada, and all those who experience gender discrimination.

Pam Hrick, Executive Director & General Counsel at LEAF, had this to say about the partnership: “Given our mutual mission to advance gender equity, we are delighted to continue our three-year partnership with Lenczner Slaght, through their ReferToHer™ initiative. We’re grateful for their increasingly generous contributions and support."

Sana Halwani, Partner and Founder of ReferToHer, adds: “LEAF does incredible work in ensuring that the law guarantees people of all genders have equal rights, responsibilities, and opportunities. We encourage all ReferToHer™ listees and supporters to donate, and we’ll make sure your contribution goes twice as far in advancing gender equity in Canada.”

Tomorrow, help LEAF achieve their $30,000 goal by donating here!


ReferToHer™ is a series of lists, organized by practice group, of experienced female lawyers to whom you can confidently refer work. As referrals are key to achieving business success, we hope this program ensures that female lawyers are positioned as equal, available, resources for those seeking legal help. This is a step towards ensuring that, regardless of gender, clients are referred to the right lawyers. Click here to learn more.
