Speaker Bio

Elizabeth Anastasia, e-Discovery Services & Strategy Director of Technology Operations at Perkins Coie, brings a broad range of experience to her role. She has over 20 years of e-discovery experience that spans the EDRM. Elizabeth has worked for companies serving as vendors to law firms and corporations specializing in document storage and secure destruction, media restoration, forensic collection, e-data processing/analytics/hosting and attorney review. She has four years of managed services experience and most recently served as Perkins Coie’s enterprise engagement manager. Elizabeth worked for a charity organization for a year expanding their secure document destruction program into the Chicago business community. This provided full time employment for developmentally challenged individuals who are providing stellar service for businesses and corporations. Elizabeth also sold attorney review services for a minority owned business. During this time, she became a member of the Minority Councils throughout the Upper Midwest and attended NAMWOLF and WBENC sponsored events. Elizabeth continues to encourage minority and women owned businesses to become certified so that they can increase their market share and exposure in the e-Discovery community.

PD188410 - Fostering Inclusiveness: Promoting Diversity and Inclusion on Your e-Discovery Team Fostering environments that provide openness and inclusion has been proven to drive team performance, innovation, and employee retention. Recognizing the benefits of diversity in the workplace is only the first step—how do you build a culture of diversity into your e-discovery business? Relativity Fest is a unique opportunity to have a productive dialogue around how we, as a community, promote diversity both within our own organizations and within the larger e-discovery and legal world.

This 60-minute panel will discuss ways of driving inclusion in your practice and inspire a vision of an inclusive e-discovery community. The panel will cover:
  • • Why diversity matters to e-discovery
  • • How to foster a culture of inclusion, diversity, and openness, as well as promote diversity of thought
  • • Strategies for finding and retaining diverse talent
  • • How to make inclusion part of your e-discovery DNA
  • • Selling diversity initiatives internally to your organization and gaining alignment on why it’s an important investment
  • • Unlocking inclusion with global e-discovery teams
