Hackathon @ Stanford University
Team Advisor: Lisa B. Horowitz, JD, MSOD, Founder and Principal Strategist, Attorney Talent Strategy Group LLC,
Palo Alto, CA
In an effort to generate “out of the box” ideas for advancing and retaining women in law firms, a group of partners and legal industry thought leaders has been convened and will participate in a Hackathon in June hosted by Stanford Law School. Since January, nine teams, each with six law firm partners, two advisers with experience in diversity issues and a Stanford Law student have been been brainstorming innovative ways to smash a stubborn glass ceiling. In June, each team will pitch their ideas to a panel of judges including general counsels from PepsiCo Inc. and Wal-Mart Stores Inc. and a retired federal judge. All prize money (first place is $10,000)will be donated to nonprofits supporting the advancement of women in law.
