Dominique Hussey talks about her path to leadership as Toronto Managing Partner at Bennett Jones in a Transforming Women's Leadership feature story. The article looks at how Dom's career, "is an excellent example to follow for women, especially women of color, who desire to reach executive levels of the legal industry."
Dom shares her thoughts on cultivating her leadership impact:
Indeed, the challenge of assuming this leadership role during a tumultuous time does not bother her; instead, she frames it as though the world is in crisis — but the firm is not. “It’s just a question of the firm having to adapt to the changing environment, sometimes at an accelerated pace,” she said, noting that among her priorities are business development and mentorship in the post-COVID world, and seeing these as critical tools for inclusion.
Hussey’s focus will be to execute on her leadership strengths — her approachability and keen eye for talent management — like she has always done, just on a greater scale. And her three-pronged secret weapon? Combining the use of technology to improve efficiency wherever possible, harnessing people’s differences and talents so people can work where their talent lies, and soliciting ideas to demonstrate that people will be heard.
