Women in Tech Speaker Resource – ‘Disrupting the Manels’

The SCL Women in Tech Group would like to compile a list of volunteer women techlaw speakers. The intention is not only to offer an alternative to men-only speaker panels but to become a valuable resource for those looking for fantastic female speakers. It will also shine a light on those who might not have had opportunities to share their knowledge and experience at techlaw events.

If you would like to volunteer, or have a recommendation, please contact hello@scl.org and we will send you a speaker form to complete.
