What Makes ILTA’s Program Unique?

The ILTA myMentor Program is an Inter-Organizational Mentorship (IOM) which offers your team an opportunity to partner with individuals from other organizations in the legal tech space for win-win scenarios. You get to engage your talent while also helping them to learn the ins and outs of different approaches to varying roles and business processes in legal.

IOMs can offer access to skills not available within your own organization; help individuals adapt to change; and are often an effective way to pass knowledge and experience on from seasoned professionals at similar levels to those new in their role at your organization.

ILTA’s IOM program provides your team with a safe space to learn, develop, and build meaningful connections in the legal tech space.

About the ILTA myMentor Program

The ILTA myMentor program aims to facilitate the ongoing professional development of professionals in the legal tech space. With a focus on professional growth, communication skills, diversity, leadership, reflective analysis, and empowerment, ILTA will provide the structure to support the program through Mentor/Mentee matching, program guidelines, structure, and a resource center. Mentor and Mentee pairs will meet virtually on a cadence established by the pairs themselves.
