Torys is proud to have hosted the North American Association of Asian Professionals (NAAAP) Toronto chapter’s first-ever Employee Resource Group (ERG) Roundtable—an event that also marked the launch of NAAAP's ERG Leadership Council.
NAAAP is a not-for-profit volunteer-based association which, according to information on its website, “aims to provide Pan Asian professionals with a forum to cultivate leadership, professional development and workplace diversity.” ERG Leadership Councils are one way the association brings together ERG representatives from various organizations to connect and share insights and best practices. At the roundtable, Tania DeSa, leadership coach and keynote speaker in the diversity and inclusion space, led a discussion about how ERGs can best be used to advance diversity within our organizations. Ed Fan, Ricco Bhasin and Crystal Chung participated as Torys representatives.
