Miller Thomson LLP hosted an art show Feb. 20, in partnership with Nia Centre for the Arts, entitled “Illuminate” at its downtown Toronto office to celebrate and honour Black History Month and diversity within the legal profession.
The event featured artwork by six Black artists, a cocktail reception and a musical performance by Adria Kain that was organized by the firm’s Black History Month committee: associates Zeinab Yousif, Mabel Kyei and Natasha Smith.
“The art is the catalyst to build the event around,” says Peter Auvinen, office managing partner, GTA at Miller Thomson. “We do all sorts of events that are built around diversity and inclusion and this, to me, seemed like a very unique event. We’ve never done anything like this before.”
