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

PD188006 - e-Discovery Certifications: Why, Which, and in What Order The evolution of the legal industry over the next decade will usher in a new and hyper-focused valuation of functional domain certification that was once only granted to a traditional three-year JD. Legal professionals who may or may not be or want to join the bar are increasingly seeking certifications. These professionals are specializing in an area of expertise and validating that knowledge with certification(s) such as the CIPP US/EU for privacy, the GLEG or CISSP for security, or CEDS for those wanting to specialize in e-discovery and more.

During this panel discussion, you'll get a better understanding of the legal certification ecosystem for non-software specific accreditation. Panelists will discuss Relativity certifications—which overlap many functional domain certifications with elements of e-discovery project management, information governance, security, privacy, and analytics—and also provide potential career mapping pathways to help you expand and diversify your areas of expertise.
