think: changing the narrative

At Stewart McKelvey we value diversity and inclusion, and are committed to providing a workplace that fosters a culture of awareness, appreciation and respect. Part of this commitment includes our Firmwide Women’s Initiative – a branch of the Diversity and Inclusion Committee, chaired by Charlottetown partner Jennifer MacPherson.

Jennifer leads a team dedicated to supporting our women lawyers in achieving their career goals, including the advancement to partnership, the development of leadership skills, and the enhancement of both client and mentor relationships. The Women’s Initiative also provides educational programs and thought leadership focused on these objectives.
