Women in eDiscovery (WiE), a nonprofit organization, provides women with legal technology education, networking, and leadership opportunities. It is open to all female legal professionals including attorneys, paralegals, legal IT staff, court reporters, consultants, recruiters and vendors.
Ongoing Support for Women in Investigative Tech
AccessData is also a National Sponsor of WiE, which relies on such support to fund all its operations and events. Earlier this year we were thrilled to sponsor WiE’s inaugural national conference in Austin. Visit their website at www.womeninediscovery.org to find a local chapter and join today.
In addition to regularly backing WiE events, AccessData supports advancing the careers of women in the broader investigative technology community, including through sponsorship of youth education opportunities. We recently hosted a hands-on lab on digital forensics at the 2019 GenCyber “Girls in CybHER Security” camp at Dakota State University in South Dakota. One hundred and fifteen girls in the 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th grades attended the camp, which sought to increase interest in cybersecurity careers and improve teaching methods for delivering cybersecurity content for K-12 programs.
Hope to see you in Houston this week!
