Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

ZSA believes that diversity, equity and inclusion are critical to the success of any organization, but their many benefits are not automatic. These principles take ongoing commitment and action as employers, advisors and citizens. ZSA is committed to fostering and maintaining an inclusive and welcoming work environment – for our clients, our candidates, and our own employees. Law firms and companies should have the skills, knowledge and training to create and sustain workplaces that value and respect everyone regardless of their background; celebrate diversity; and offer individuals the opportunity to achieve personal and professional growth and advance their career. Recognizing this has informed ZSA’s strong commitment to advancing diversity, equity and inclusion in our own hiring practices as well as for filling the staffing needs of our clients. ZSA has fully inclusive hiring procedures in place to inform, advise and guide our clients to attract, recruit and retain top legal talent that will make their organization stronger, more efficient and better serve the diverse communities they operate in. ZSA and our team of experienced recruiters, headhunters and talent acquisition specialists strive to understand how we can best contribute to the incorporation of diversity, equity and inclusion in to everyday working life, and sincerely hope that you will join us in our ongoing mission.


ZSA is proud to be an active supporter of the legal communities we serve, and over the past two decades we have developed a number of strong affiliations with amazing organizations and charitable causes. ZSA is the founder of the Canadian General Counsel Awards, Western Canada General Counsel Awards, and the Quebec General Counsel Awards; the only legal awards in Canada dedicated to celebrating the excellence of in-house counsel (referred to by some as the “Oscars of the legal community”). ZSA is also the founder of the Quorum Club, an annual networking event for leading general counsel and senior counsel from across the country.
