Event description

Description

The Black Female Lawyers Network (BFLN) invites you to join us for high tea on Saturday June 2, 2018 at 1pm. We will be celebrating and honouoring the legacy of Violet Pauline King Henry, the first black woman called to the bar in Canada. Come and learn about Violet and join us in discussing how we can each (whatever our creed, colour or career) continue to fulfil Violet's legacy of excellence and perserverance. As we enjoy high tea, there will be time for mentoring, sharing and plenty of laughter. Bring your business cards.

Tickets - $75 per adult. Tickets are are limited so please book early to avoid disappointment.

Guests - This networking event is open to lawyers and non-lawyers. Invite a friend, colleague or client. We encourage you to bring your own sistah. #BYOSistah. If you'd like to bring a little sistah (aged 12 years and under), please email the BLFN at info@bfln.ca.

Dress code - It's high tea so feel free to be as comfortable or as fabulous as you wish. Fascinators/hats/headwraps are optional. Please try to incorporate the colour purple into your outfit as an ode to Violet, Wakanda and a continuation of the celebration of International Women's Day.

Charity - We would like to make a donation to Herizon House - an Ajax-based shelter for abused women and their children. Feel no obligation but, if you would like to make a donation, please bring a cheque made payable to Herizon House (which is a registered Canadian charity).
