What is GROWL ?

Global Rise Of Women in LegalTech

As part of the 2019 Global Legal Hackathon (GLH), we are launching the Global Rise Of Women in LegalTech (“GROWL”) initiative to support up-and-coming women leaders in legal innovation around the world. GROWL will be fully integrated with this year’s hackathon, providing an enhanced track for women-led teams.

Why is GROWL important?

Research shows that women tend to approach problem solving differently than men, typically in a more collaborative and social way, talking through the problem, discussing the situation in detail, and collaborating effectively with a complex array of stakeholders. As the legal industry evolves to become more responsive to client requirements for innovation and value, women are ideally suited to lead the legal innovation movement around the world.

How does GROWL work?

A globally-located panel of senior women leaders in the legal industry drawn from The Americas, Europe, Asia, and Africa, will support the hundreds of women-led teams expected to participate in #GLH2019 with an unprecedented global network of mentors, tools, and resources to accelerate and amplify their efforts to evolve and improve the world’s legal industry. Participation is voluntary, and there is no cost.
