As I write to you today, I am reflecting on the issue of firsts. Not only is this the first P2P of the new year, it is also my first column as CEO of ILTA. This month, you will see our first issues in the re-launch of our HomeBase and PartnerCentral e-newsletters. In late April/early May, we hope to see you at
our first-ever innovation and young professionals events. Actually, my original plan for this column was to reflect on Servant Leadership – that will be a theme across all my columns in 2019. However, first allow me to indulge a little more in a reflection on firsts.

Welcome to Evolving KM, a podcast where we discuss how Knowledge Management is progressing and the impact that’s having on KM professionals. In each episode, we interview people who have either worked in or on the periphery of Knowledge Management and get their perspectives on how this profession is evolving to meet the shifting demands of legal service delivery.

We hope you enjoy this episode!

In this episode, we speak with our guest Kathleen Hogan, Director of Education and Knowledge Integration at McCarthy Tétrault in Toronto. Kathleen brings years of experience in the legal industry, from research lawyer to in-house and law firm KM and professional development. 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. Kathleen tells the story of an unfortunate, but unfortunately common, experience she had as a woman in legal technology. 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!

Happy New Year! I can’t believe almost a quarter has passed since we last “spoke” via Peer to Peer. The old saying about time flying when you’re having fun is certainly true from my perspective. I have been enjoying every minute of meeting with the citizens of ILTA-land: members, volunteer leaders, business partners, and ILTA staffers.
