Munger, Tolles & Olson is participating in the Women in Law Hackathon, a Shark Tank-style pitch competition with the goal of generating innovative ideas for how to close the gender gap at law firms.
Presented by Diversity Lab in partnership with Stanford Law School and Bloomberg Law, the competition invites teams to devise initiatives that will help retain and advance experienced women in law firms. Teams comprised of high-level law firm leaders, talent/diversity thought leaders and a Stanford law student will pitch their ideas to a group of judges at Stanford Law School on June 24, 2016.
Prizes range from $5,000 to $10,000, which will be donated to a nonprofit dedicated to advancing women in the legal profession and beyond.
“Our firm is deeply committed to the retention and advancement of talented women in the legal profession,” Munger Tolles Diversity Chair Mark B. Helm said. “We are proud to support such innovative programs as the Women in Law Hackathon.”
