Equality in Action: Substantive Equality and Organizational Development Issues for Legal Organizations was a workshop designed for non-profit legal organizations such as law societies, legal education institutions and providers of legal services and programs.  The program was meant to provide advice and assistance to those organizations working within the law and legal profession that have made a commitment to principles of equality and diversity. It included a needs assessment, a workshop crafted specifically for the organization, and a follow-up report that includde recommendations, special information and resources.

The overall goal of the workshop was to share LEAF’s concept of substantive equality – developed through years of interventions – and explore ways in which this concept should and could be applied to an organization’s structure, programming and services.
