Subcommittees:

  1. Innovation – Content explores technologies, tools, practices, and strategies related to the ever-evolving innovation in the legal industry.

#3 Women’s Initiative Network (WIN) Committee (replace Road Trip)

Established in 2017

The Women's Initiative Network (WIN) provides a platform to discuss best practices and encourage information sharing in an effort to better promote the roles of women within legal and our evolving community. The business of law community includes a wide array of professionals in various career stages in an array of disciplines. As with many evolving industries, we recognize there is a gap in promoting women in this space. This group was created to allow women to connect and support each other in these emerging and challenging roles.


Term: 1 year | Time commitment: Quarterly calls to plan annual WIN activities. Activities include virtual happy hours (at least 3 per year) and the WIN Program and Reception at the LVNx Conference. The committee identifies topics and discussion prompts for these events and creates the agenda. Meetings are held via Zoom.
