Stuart is joined by Lorin MacDonald, human rights lawyer and disability advocate, for a conversation about accommodation and inclusion.

For decades, human rights lawyer Lorin MacDonald has demonstrated leadership, passion, and commitment to accessibility and inclusion in her volunteer and professional activities, all informed by her lived experience as a woman born with profound hearing loss. Recognized as one of Canada’s disability leaders, Lorin has made many aware of the challenges faced by Canadians with disabilities during COVID-19, in addition to her human rights and accessibility presentations.

For the past three years, Lorin has been a nominee for Canadian Lawyer magazine’s Top 25 Most Influential Lawyers in the Human Rights category, named to the list in 2021. Also last year, the Women’s Executive Network included Lorin as one of Canada’s Most Powerful Women: Top 100. In May 2022, the Law Society of Ontario bestowed upon Lorin the Law Society Medal, its highest honour, for outstanding service in recognition of her work to make the profession more accessible and inclusive.
