Justice at Work: Keynote Address by Fatema Dada

Wednesday, October 28, 2020 - 12:00 to 13:00

The Career Services Office and the Justice at Work Student Committee are excited to present this year’s virtual conference, with the support of the Law Foundation of Ontario. This year’s conference will feature a keynote and two panels of Windsor Law and UWindsor alumni with backgrounds in social justice law. Come learn about their career paths and advice for students. 

Fatema Dada graduated from Windsor Law in 2007. While a student, she completed a Social Justice Fellowship with the India Centre for Human Rights and Law. From 2007 to 2017, Fatema worked at the Crown Law Office - Civil with the Ministry of the Attorney General’s Office, specializing in civil litigation. In that capacity, she argued dozens of trials, applications and motions. Fatema then served as a Senior Policy Advisor to then-Attorney General, Yasir Naqvi, before being named Counsel to the Ontario Human Rights Commission, where she focuses on issues of Racial Profiling and Discrimination within policing.  Fatema is an Executive Member of SMILE Canada - Support Services, an organization dedicated to supporting children with disabilities in minority communities. She also sits on the board of the Canadian Muslim Lawyers Association and the Canadian Association of Muslim Women in Law.  When the COVID-19 crisis began, Fatema reconnected with another Windsor Alumnus who asked her to join Conquer COVID-19. In 5 months, Conquer COVID-19 became one of the largest, most diverse grassroots COVID-19 responses in Canada, and helped supply healthcare workers with over 3 million items of PPE.
