Career Accelerator Program

Career Accelerator


Mante Molepo has been named the 2022-23 Ontario Bar Association Innovator in Residence and is leading the association’s new career accelerator for Indigenous and racialized lawyers in emerging areas of law. 

Each year, an Innovator in Residence is appointed to work with the OBA’s Past President to identify, develop and advance solutions that will help lawyers better serve their clients and the profession, all while improving access to justice. Previous innovators have been Peter Aprile of Counter Tax Lawyers, Ryerson’s Legal Innovation Zone, and last year’s innovator – Friedrich Blase. Through programs like this initiative, the OBA has become a trusted source for advancing innovation in the legal profession.  

The OBA’s career accelerator program builds upon this foundation. It is designed to give early- and mid-career Indigenous and racialized lawyers the skills and training they need to advance their participation in four emerging areas of law: artificial intelligence, ESG, fintech and privacy. Over a span of eight weeks – beginning in the summer of 2023 – accelerators will participate in substantive professional development in the four areas.
