    The Heller Group presents...

    The 12th Annual Young Women in Law Charity Gala

    Please join YWL and The Heller Group for an evening of networking and fun in support of a worthy cause! 

    YWL is thrilled to announce that LISA LAFLAMME will be the keynote speaker at this year's event.

    Lisa LaFlamme has been at the forefront of journalism for over 30 years tackling some of the biggest issues of our time, travelling the globe, delivering breaking news and bringing it back home to Canadians. As a veteran journalist, she is the recipient of 12 Canadian Screen Awards, consecutive RTDNA awards, a Lifetime Achievement Award for broadcasting and journalism, the 2023 The Gordon Sinclair Award for her "exceptional body of work in broadcast journalism" and the prestigious Canadian Journalism Foundation (CJF) Tribute award for 2023. Lisa is also an ambassador for Plan International and volunteers for Canadian Women for Women in Afghanistan. 

    The donation recipient of this year’s Gala is Canadian Woman for Women in Afghanistan (CW4WAfghan). CW4WAfghan is a not-for-profit organization that raises awareness and funds in support of its various programs including investments in basic education, community libraries, literacy and books, technology for education, public engagement and Afghanistan Policy Dialogue. Since its founding in 1998, CW4WAfghan has trained more than 10,000 teachers, provided literacy classes to nearly 5,000 students, distributed nearly 300 school libraries and 262 science labs and shared thousands of resources through its Darakht-e Danesh Digital Library.
