In this episode, we speak with our guest Kathleen Hogan, Director of Education and Knowledge Integration at McCarthy Tétrault in Toronto.

We discuss Kathleen’s article in the recently published KM White Paper, Practical Tips on Staying Practical in an Innovative Culture, including her thoughts on soft launches, agile teams, and working with attorneys. We then address Kathleen’s provocative article, Women in Legal Tech, published earlier this Fall on Slaw, Canada’s online legal magazine.

We discuss strategies for combatting gender bias, and Kathleen shares her advice for women aspiring to advance. Listen to this episode for ideas you can put into practice today!
