Women in eDiscovery

As a service provider in the legal industry, Rainmaker is a member of several organizations and associations that support industry professionals but one of the organizations that I personally enjoy the most is Women in eDiscovery.  Founded by three women in the industry, the organizations seeks to bring together women interested in technology related to the legal industry and to provide opportunities for them to help themselves and other women grow personally and professionally through leadership, education, networking support, and national recognition.

 The organizations goals are:

  • To create leadership and networking opportunities among women who are interested in helping themselves and other women grow personally and professionally.
  • To advocate the viewpoint of professional women in the legal industry especially on issues affecting the application of technology in their roles at work and at home.
  • To bridge the knowledge gap for women between old technology, traditional technology, and future trends.
  • To offer educational and certification opportunities for women who are interested in furthering their education in legal and technology fields.
  • To establish a strong communication network among women focused in the legal and technology industries.

The technology side of this business is often male-dominated and it is nice to have a group of women to learn and grow with.  The Central Texas chapter is experiencing growth and we hold monthly meetings with a vendor-sponsored lunch and presentation.  Our membership includes paralegals, litigation support professionals and vendors from a variety of companies.  If you would like to be included in the monthly meeting you can email wiedaustin (at) gmail.com.

If you are interested in joining your local chapter, please visit their website.  Membership is free (yay!) and there are no special requirements to join.
