Their call now is to continue collaborating in the adoption of new technologies to manage critical information more effectively as part of a broader business process. Tweet This #PressforProgress #IWD2018

 

Andrea Williams, VP, Technology and Emerging Solutions

Blue quotes_50px.png Don’t wait to be asked to the dance. If something interests you, go for it. Technology and information have never been more accessible. As capabilities advance, there are more opportunities every day to find new ways to integrate those new capabilities into real-life, real-use solutions. Now more than ever diverse perspectives, knowledge and experience are needed to evolve the merger of 'legal practice' and 'technology'. Don’t wait for permission or an invitation, just find your song and start dancing. Tweet This #PressforProgress #IWD2018

Blue quotes_50px.png It’s important to ground ourselves in change management practices to support the continued growth of our industry, our teams and ourselves. Progressive change is a constant and persistence, resilience and collaboration are key. To quote Helen Keller 'Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much'. Tweet This #PressforProgress #IWD2018

Blue quotes_50px.png A critical factor to promoting and retaining more women into leadership roles in the legal technology field is access to positive role models. Current women leaders who set aside time to actively provide mentorship and support to the next generation of legal tech thinkers will drive continued progress in the field and opportunities for continued positive transformations in the marketplace.

Blue quotes_50px.png Today’s industry rewards those who are collaborative, curious and fearless. Legal technology has advanced significantly over the last decade but there is still so much opportunity from emerging tech to enhance legal operations of the future. It's important to share industry best practices with your extended network and determine how you can drive positive change throughout your own organization. Tweet This #PressforProgress #IWD2018
