Women In LegalTech

Recently the LegalTech industry has seen tremendous growth, and the global LegalTech market has been estimated at more than US $15.9 billion. One of the main factors that has contributed to this success has been the participation of women, specifically in the MENA region. They have had an immensely positive impact in the LegalTech industry by advancing as CEOs, tech founders and most importantly, extraordinary leaders who are committed to achieving their goals in this tough male dominated industry. These women are an inspiration and a prime example of the transformation in the legal industry.

By implementing initiatives that not only encourage diversity among women, but also celebrate their progress and success, it creates a competitive environment where individuals can thrive.

Although women are making great strides in various industries and have established numerous paths to their achievements, female leaders still account for less than 15% worldwide. In order to facilitate this rate of change, and to promote the support of women in Law/tech and leadership we can:

1. Invest in inclusion, challenge the unconscious bias

2. Empower and celebrate those who are leading the way

3. Cross-promote within your own customer base

4. introducing a female founder’s business to your potential investors.  Did you know VC funding for women founders in tech start-ups is estimated at less than 2% of global investment?  

We aim to use this portal to promote and develop women in LegalTech through specific training sessions, mentoring and events.  As a first step we will launch our ‘women in LegalTech power list’ for the MENA region.  This will comprise of a number of individuals, who are then voted for by our community.  A shortlist will be interviewed by our senior management team, and experts to choose the ‘one lady who tops the power list for 2019’.

Current nominations are under progress and will be published soon.  The winner will be announced at the legal tech GCC summit on the 27th November 2020, in Dubai.
