ReferToHer Partners with Women’s Legal Education & Action Fund (LEAF)

Lenczner Slaght is proud to announce that ReferToHer™ will once again be the exclusive matching donor for LEAF’s annual Giving Tuesday fundraiser.

On November 29, 2022, we will be matching up to $12,500 of all donations made to LEAF in order to help advance 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: “We’re delighted to continue a three-year partnership with Lenczner Slaght, through their ReferToHer™ initiative, in support of Giving Tuesday. We’re grateful for this contribution, which will continue to grow next year.”

Sana Halwani, Partner and Founder of ReferToHer™, adds: “Given our mutual mission to advance gender equity, we are proud to partner with LEAF again this year. We encourage all ReferToHer listees and supporters to donate. Together, we’ll make double the impact!”

Tomorrow, help LEAF to achieve their $25,000 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.
