On May 21, Miller Thomson lawyers in the firm’s Toronto office participated in Walk A Mile in Her Shoes, the sixth annual walk through the streets of the city’s downtown to draw attention to the issue of violence against women and girls.

The event, organized by White Ribbon, is the world’s largest movement of men and boys working to end violence against women, promote gender equity and build a new vision of masculinity.

Miller Thomson’s team of six walked a mile in high heels and helped raise $4,390. Team members included Arthur Wilson, Manager of Practice Group Process Innovation; Douglas Best, Chair of National Corporate Fraud Asset Recovery Group; Andrew Valentine, Partner in the Charities and Not-for-Profit Group; Kate Lazier, Partner in the Charities and Not-for-Profit Group; Magdalena Krol, Supervisor, Legal Assistant Services; and Michael Best, Associate Counsel in the Insurance Group, who was interviewed by CityNews for his efforts: “As a husband and a father of a young girl, this is least I can do.”
