Women In eDiscovery Celebrates 7-Year Anniversary


 
PRLog - May 19, 2014 - MINNEAPOLIS, MN – May 19, 2014 – Women in eDiscovery, a nonprofit organization that brings together women interested in technology related to the legal profession, announced today the celebration of its seven-year anniversary.

Women in eDiscovery provides women the opportunity to help each other grow personally and professionally through leadership, education, networking support and national recognition.

In 2007, the organization held its first meeting in Washington, D.C., with 30 women in attendance. In a short period of time, the organization has achieved global reach with more than 3,000 members. Women in eDiscovery has 22 chapters and recently launched a new one in Nashville. The organization’s members are comprised of women who work within the legal industry, including general counsel, secretaries, partners, associates, chief operating officers, paralegals, litigation support and e-discovery professionals.

Local chapters typically hold an educational session, some CLE-accredited, each month, and the national board organizes larger events around major legal technology trade shows and association meetings throughout the year.

Women in eDiscovery promotes philanthropy throughout the organization. Some notable accomplishments over the past year include raising $2,014 for the American Heart Association’s Go Red campaign; $2,500 for Running Start, a Silicon Valley organization that trains the next generation of young women political leaders; $3,500 by the Minneapolis chapter for Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, plus other chapters contributing to the Dress for Success campaigns and Toys for Tots and participating in other community service events.

The organization also recently launched its own MentorHub, an online community that allows for mentorship across all of the Women in eDiscovery chapters.
