Supporting women entrepreneurs at the Dell Women’s Entrepreneur Network summit

We are gearing up for another exciting year of partnership with the Dell Women’s Entrepreneur Network (DWEN) summit. Held in Toronto this year, DWEN is a global platform for female entrepreneurs. The annual summit amplifies DWEN's reach by connecting participants, expanding networks and reach to sources of capital, information, and technology with the goal of advancing the role of women in economic growth.

Along with our partner, Canadian law firm Davies Ward Phillips & Vineberg LLP, we’ll present on relevant legal issues covering a wide range of global markets and practice areas of interest for all attendees. Hogan Lovells partners Mahvesh Qureshi, Roberta Chang, and Sahira Khwaja, along with Davies partner Franziska Ruf, will lead a key general legal session focused on the business and legal issues that matter most to early and mid-stage entrepreneurs. Building on the tools we developed for last year's summit, we'll provide an in-depth legal resource for entrepreneurs to use during and after the summit. The complimentary legal toolkit will cover key legal concerns for businesses throughout diverse jurisdictions.

Our commitment to the empowerment of women and girls globally is embedded in our firm’s values. Leveraging the talent of our Hogan Lovells community, our attorneys have devoted more than 75,000 hours to our Empowering Girls and Women Initiative, a program that has partnered with more than 45 nonprofit organizations, including Barefoot College (supporting female solar engineers) and Kids in Need of Defense (KIND).

We boldly strive to exceed the social and environmental responsibilities we have to our people, our clients, and our local and global communities. We have been honored to be recognized with the Dell Legal Diversity Award in 2013 and 2016 and have been the recipient of the Women in Law Empowerment Forum (WILEF) Gold Standard Certification for the sixth consecutive yearOur focus on entrepreneurship extends to changing the way we think about the connection between business and social impact through the Hogan Lovells Business and Social Enterprise (HL BaSE) initiative, a program that partners our lawyers with entrepreneurs to scale their social impact to secure a balance between financial, societal, and environmental sustainability.

It is with great pride that we support the DWEN summit and take part in this important forum that's dedicated to creating a strong foundation for women entrepreneurs to succeed. We look forward to engaging with the global DWEN community at this year's summit and the opportunity to hear from future business and industry sector leaders.
