Women in eDiscovery

How time flies when you're having fun!

I hadn't realized that my last post was way back on the 4th, and seeing as I had some unexpected free time today I decided that I'd better put together a quick post!

As some readers will know, I'm the Assistant Director of the Toronto Chapter of Women in eDiscovery. The Toronto chapter, although not (yet!) the largest, has been one of the most rapidly growing chapters, reflecting a previously unmet need for education and networking among litigation technology professionals.

We usually have around 30 members turn up to each meeting (sometimes more, sometimes less) and, now that the "formalities" meetings are over, we're starting to get into the swing of things.

Our last meeting, on September 17th, was held at Torys (thanks Ceyda!); lunch was sponsored by KPMG; and Kelly Inglese (from McCarthy's) spoke. Our meetings are going to be held on the third Wednesday of the month at lunchtime.

If you are a woman involved in litigation support, legal technology or eDiscovery, join Women in eDiscovery (it's free!) and check us out.
