Walied Soliman is the Global Chair and Canadian Chair of Norton Rose Fulbright and is a long-time advocate of diversity, inclusion and mental health issues. He believes that Canada is strengthened when advancement is open to everyone indiscriminately.
He carries his positive vision for a better world by being involved in making local communities prosper.
