Nomination Title: Thomson Reuters Transforming Women's Leadership in the Law
When was this website first published? This site was first published in 2016.
Briefly describe the purpose of the nominated web site and its impact and results to date (up to 200 words):
The Transforming Women's Leadership in the Law (TWLL) website, which is hosted by the Thomson Reuters Legal Executive Institute, launched in 2016 to support an initiative by the same name. TWLL was formed to connect in-house counsel and law firm leaders in a sustained dialogue about how to address the underrepresentation of women in senior executive ranks within law firms; and more broadly, to discuss opportunities for achieving a more diverse and inclusive legal industry that increases its retention and promotion of women and people of color at post-associate levels.
Since 2016, the TWLL site has published more than 200 pieces of content that provide action-oriented career and business advice and insights in the form of: bylined articles that are written by a diverse range of industry leaders and experts; coverage of legal diversity and inclusion industry events; podcast and video interviews with key experts and influencers; and a monthly program highlights newsletter written by the Thomson Reuters program executive sponsor.
In 2018, TWLL branched out overseas, launching a chapter within the UK and Ireland, which kicked off with an inaugural event and a complementary new website offering robust thought leadership that includes all segments of the legal industry.
