Boughton Law, a Platinum Sponsor for Success Luncheon hosted a workshop for our Career Centre providing guidance on small business law. Three lawyers spoke to a highly engaged group of women who came prepared with questions and ready to learn. Luca Citton, Managing Director at Boughton Law, took the time to share a letter about the evening as well as Boughton’s passion for, and commitment to Dress for Success Vancouver.
Dear Dress For Success Vancouver Luncheon Attendees,
Boughton Law is proud to partner with Dress For Success Vancouver and bring us together to support a cause that is dear to our firm.
Boughton Law is committed to empowering women in the workforce. Currently, 15 out of our 24 associate lawyers are women. We believe in continuously developing the skills of our lawyers and providing mentorship and learning opportunities to advance their careers and their confidence. Empowerment, dignity, and inclusiveness is knitted into the culture of our firm.
When we first met with DFSV, we immediately saw an organization that aligned with Boughton’s core values. We saw in DFSV a partner that also works hard to support working women and who also believes we are better off when we are all better off. And so, in early October, Boughton and DFSV started on our partnership journey. We were thrilled to host over 30 DFSV participants at the Boughton Law offices for a legal workshop with three of our lawyers: Elizabeth Reid, Janice Wu, and Lori Massini. The discussion touched on Business Law 101—everything from creating the right corporate structure to incorporation procedures and knowing one’s rights as a business owner. The event was mutually beneficial; the participants had the opportunity to learn more about the legal side of the corporate world, while our lawyers had the chance to connect with DFSV participants and learn how they can help local women achieve economic independence.
Thank you, Dress For Success Vancouver, for empowering women in our community. Boughton Law is thrilled to partner with you, and we look forward to collaborating in future endeavours.
