As you know, SCL WiTL's objective is to accelerate the number of women entering, advancing through, and celebrated in the technology law sector in order to achieve a more inclusive and diverse sector.
Last year a partner's LinkedIn post blasting the lack of women in one of the legal directories went viral. The challenge is equally profound in the tech legal sector. Whether it's the directories or conferences, we know that there is still a lot of work to have more diverse representation.
At SCL we will continue to work to raise the profile of our members, but in light of this year's International Women's Day theme #EachforEqual, we think that it's also important to consider what each of us can do to make a positive impact. Whether that's raising our own profiles or lifting women within our own organisations or across the industry.
In this session, we will hear how you can approach submissions to the legal directories (whether as an applicant or referee) to help drive more balanced rankings.
We will also facilitate an interactive and practical session where we help you hone your elevator pitch, refine your bio, consider how to approach directory entries, speaking opportunities and awards submissions.
We are also delighted to be joined by a photographer, who will be available (free of charge) at the session to make sure that you have that professional headshot (or improve the one you currently have!)
Please join us to consider what you can do to raise your profile and help drive change in the sector.
Attendance at this meeting is free of charge and is open to all, including our SCL male allies.
