|Post-Election Analysis in Toronto
IN PARTNERSHIP WITH MCCARTHY TETRAULT LLP
NOVEMBER 12, 2019 - TORONTO, 12:00PM-2:00PM
#ELXN43 : The new government’s impact on your business in a time of uncertainty
On November 12th, join McCarthy Tétrault’s Strategic Advisory Group and NATIONAL Public Relations, Canada’s leading public relations firm for a post-election analysis.
In a period of uncertainty, our panel will be from Jean Charest who led a minority government in 2007 and then gain a majority in 2008 in Quebec, Paul Zed who chaired several parliamentary committees and was also Parliamentary Secretary to the Leader of the Government under a minority government and Wayne Wouters who is a former Clerk of the Privy Council of Canada and Secretary to the Cabinet. They will be joined by experts from NATIONAL Public Relations and Shachi Kurl, Executive Director of the Angus Reid Institute.
This is an unique opportunity for you to receive insights from people who have been at the most strategic and highest levels of government and business. They will evaluate how the new House of Commons will impact government decision-making and your business. What’s the impact on Trade, Investment and Innovation?
I would be delighted if you could join other Toronto leaders in the business community at this exclusive event.

Women GCs on Boards: Building, Leveraging and Accessing Powerful Networks
IN PARTNERSHIP WITH BLAKE, CASSELS & GRAYDON LLP
NOVEMBER 13, 2019 - TORONTO, 1:30PM-5:30PM
We are pleased to invite you to our 4th Annual Women GCs on Boards workshop, a cornerstone program in our ongoing series dedicated to helping women GCs leverage their business and strategic skill sets and broaden and deepen their networks to better position themselves to secure opportunities on boards.
This year’s workshop will feature an interactive program on how to build and leverage your network led by Tiziana Casciaro, a professor of organizational behaviour at the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management. Tiziana will present cutting-edge research on the science of networks and unpack the way in which women network, lead and are perceived as leaders. The application of these learnings in your board pursuits will be explored in the second half of our workshop in facilitated table discussions led by directors.
The program will provide practical tools on how to build and effectively leverage your network and access other networks in support of your board aspirations and leadership opportunities.
We hope you can join us for this interactive program where we will also share the results of the Blakes Board Report: Opportunities for Women General Counsel.
A detailed agenda will be available in September. We look forward to seeing you at the workshop.
Cocktail Reception: 4:30PM-5:30PM

PRESENTED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH MATHEWS, DINSDALE & CLARK LLP
DECEMBER 12, 2019 (POSTPONED FROM SEPTEMBER 11, 2019) - HALIFAX, 9:00AM – 12:00PM
We are pleased to offer our members in Atlantic Canada this session on workplace investigations with speakers Sonia Regenbogen and Tara Erskine, QC.
General counsel, and the human resources professionals within their organizations, are spending an increasing amount of time guiding the conduct of formal and informal investigations of workplace complaints. This is in part a response to the increasing requirements of human rights and occupational health and safety legislation as well as internal workplace policies. The complaints that require investigation may relate to complaints of workplace harassment and discrimination, issues related to just cause misconduct, violations of workplace policies, or other difficult issues.
In light of this area of increasing responsibility, in our experience, General Counsel are welcoming the opportunity to continue to improve their skills and experience in order to be better prepared for the rigors of guiding workplace investigations and managing the litigation that flows from the investigation of workplace complaints.
A holiday luncheon will be provided by WGCC at the Bicycle Thief following the event. Space is limited, so please RSVP as soon as possible.
