Leonard Kim is a lawyer in Sudbury who serves on the Equity Advisory Group with the Law Society of Ontario and as a Board Member with the Federation of Asian Canadian Lawyers (Ontario). He is the former Chair of the City of Greater Sudbury’s Diversity Advisory Panel where during his tenure, they conceptualized, drafted and presented Sudbury’s Diversity Policy Statement to City Council for official adoption. The focus of this document was grounded in the inherent right of every person to be treated with dignity, respect and equal opportunity regardless of who they are as human beings. Sudbury’s Diversity Policy Statement received unanimous approval from City Council in May 2014. Thanks to the support of key leaders in the City, the policy is publicly displayed today in municipal buildings with beautiful artwork to showcase its content and purpose.
