9:00 AM - 10:00 AM | Opening Keynote - How to Build Up Your Resilience to Leadership Fatigue

Leading through this era of upheaval and strife hasn’t been easy. We’ve had to acknowledge hardship without signaling despair, model vulnerability without appearing ineffective, and inspire hope without veering into toxic positivity. It’s no wonder so many legal leaders are tired. After fifteen years guiding the U.S. Justice Department through its response to victims in cases ranging from terrorism to large-scale financial fraud to child exploitation, Kate Manning is no stranger to dealing with highly sensitive and complex cases. As our opening keynote, join as Kate will share her expertise on responding to one of the biggest challenges facing legal leaders today - leadership fatigue.

3:45 PM - 4:45 PM | Plenary Session: The Ethics of Legal AI

Data is at the core of every decision corporations make and has become a powerful resource that will only continue to drive innovation. Leaders are continuing to grapple with creating a standard of Ethics for their organizations to follow as they begin deploying more AI models. Data comes with ethical and privacy challenges, and many organizations are trying to find the balance between using data in an ethically sound manner while also not compromising on privacy. How do you draw a line in the sand as we all seek to formalize “just because we can, doesn’t mean we should”?
