  • The KM Toolkit: Then, Now and What's Next?

    Date: October 24, 2017

    Cost: $15.00

    Location: Alexander Holburn Beaudin + Lang LLP

    Overview:

    Please join us for a webinar that was presented to the International Legal Technology Association in August 2017, by Sukesh Kamra. He is a lawyer and the National Director of Knowledge Management for Canada and Latin America at Norton Rose Fulbright Canada LLP. In the webinar, Sukesh discusses the evolution of the knowledge management (KM) toolkit. Originally conceived as an internal initiative to promote the reuse of best-practice legal content, KM is now regarded as key to driving a firm’s commercial success. Clients are keen to form strategic partnerships with law firms and benefit from the KM tools firms develop. Looking to the future, technology and innovation will continue to disrupt the legal industry in critical ways, and the KM toolkit will evolve to adapt to this new normal.

    After this 30-minute presentation, we will have time to talk about Now and What’s Next on the KM front, at our firms.

    We will be joined by some Vancouver ILTA members who may have missed the original session.

    Date: November 08, 2017

    Cost: $45.45

    Location: Terminal City Club

    Overview:

    As responsible employers, its up to us to not only provide a physically safe environment for our workers, but also one that is psychologically healthy and safe. In today’s increasingly complex and busy world, people are unfortunately contending with more mental health issues.  Not only is there a moral obligation to assist, supporting employees’ mental health can improve productivity, cut down on absences, and increase worker retention. Are we, as leaders and human resources professionals, doing enough to help our staff be their best selves at work?  Fostering a culture of understanding and acceptance of people with mental illness is the foundation to building psychologically healthy and safe workplaces.  Please join us for a workshop designed to help build comfort in talking about mental health and mental illness, and to learn how to respond in a supportive way to co-workers, staff and lawyers who may be experiencing a mental illness. 

    This important workshop will be facilitated by Lucette Wesley, a Certified Mental Health Works Trainer, with the Canadian Mental Health Association. Lucette has over 25 years of experience as Manager/Director of large disability claims operations responsible for up to 200 staff. Her expertise in disability management and her broad understanding of related fields is the foundation for providing support and innovation in disability management programs with employers, including large corporate, union and municipal plans. She was selected as one of the top 50 Women of Influence in the Canadian Insurance Industry by The Insurance and Investment Journal in 2014.  Lucette has been trained in Mental Health First Aid and the Community Gatekeeper Program (Suicide Prevention).  Lucette has actively promoted and supported mental health initiatives in her current and past workplaces and the external community
