Women in Legal Ops & Tech: Integrating Diversity, Equity & Inclusion into Your Growth Strategy

October 27, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

The push for social justice reform, racial and gender equity as well as LGBTQIA rights has made diversity a necessary leadership focus for organizations of all sizes. The pressure is on to walk the walk, not just talk the talk.

So what can organizations do to create a culture that thrives on diversity, equity and inclusion? How can managers and leaders support their diverse employees in a way that’s positive and supportive? At the same time, are there effective operational initiatives and metrics-focused practices that hold businesses, divisions or managers accountable for making real progress? What are some constructive ways for women leaders and employees at all levels to be supportive and inclusive of each other? How do you forge workplace allies in the pursuit of equity and inclusion. Join us for a conversation with women leaders in legal technology and operations about these challenges and more.

Speakers will include:

Michele Kell, Director, Enterprise Operations, CDS

Ellen P. Blanchard, Esq., Director, Discovery and Information Governance (DIG), T-Mobile
Zelda Owens, CEO, Owens Williams & Associates LLC 
Mary Rechtoris, Producer, Multimedia & Design and Active Member, Relativity Women of the Workplace
Lauren Resnick, Partner, Baker Hostetler

About CDS’ Women in Legal Operations & Technology Webinar Series
In 2020, we began a conversation with a group of women in legal operations and technology, exploring how the pandemic had impacted office culture, career trajectories and gender dynamics. In 2021, we plan to continue the dialogue with a rotating group of women leaders to see how these changes ultimately take shape, venturing deeper into specific topics while maintaining a candid, conversational tone. We encourage women in the profession to join us to share your experiences and grow your network.
