Gowling WLG's Diversonomics podcast and Condo Adviser blog have each been recognized with a Canadian Law Blog Award, also known as a "Clawbie," for 2018. Condo Adviser won in the category of "Best Practice Group Blog" and Diversonomics for "Best Legal Culture Blog."
While this marks the third Clawbie win for Condo Adviser in the last four years, this is the first ever Clawbie win for the Diversonomics series.

The podcast series is known for its open and honest discussions about critical workplace issues concerning race, gender and sexuality, mental health, unconscious bias, allyship and more.
