Dayna Steinfeld to Moderate Panel on Pay Equity

On January 19, 2023, Dayna Steinfeld will be moderating a panel at the Manitoba Bar Association 2023 Mid-Winter Conference, one of the marquee professional development events in Manitoba. Dayna will be moderating a panel discussion on “Pay Equity in the Legal Profession”, which will feature a diverse panel of speakers on the data (and lack thereof, due to resistance to the collection of data within the profession) to help legal professionals in Manitoba understand pay (in)equity in the legal profession.

Topics will include the findings and recommendations in the Canadian Bar Association’s report on pay equity in the profession, compensation studies of in-house counsel, relevant legal considerations, and the role that legal employers, law societies, governments and lawyers can play in closing the gender pay gap and achieving pay equity in the legal profession.
