Access to Mentorship, Representation and Justice
OABP exists to raise awareness and enable change to end systemic discrimination and increase racial diversity in the legal system. We educate and mentor Black paralegals and law clerks in Ontario, creating a supportive network to help them confidently advance their careers. We encourage and support non-Black legal professionals in the pursuit of learning more about systemic discrimination and racism in the workplace, and how it impacts their colleagues and clients through sharing strategies for impactful allyship.
You can count on us to do this in ways that are collaborative, inclusive, open and transparent, with the goal of creating a safe space to share and grow for everyone who hopes to be part of the journey to end systemic racism.
