We are thrilled to welcome renowned journalist and author Lesley Stahl as our featured guest at the fourth annual Corporate Ediscovery Hero Awards. The ceremony will take place at New York City’s elegant Hotel Edison on Monday, February 3, 2020.
Ms. Stahl is one of the most recognized faces in television news. She’s an award winning journalist who broke into what was then a male-dominated industry, and made a name for herself by breaking national stories and landing exclusive interviews. The stories she has covered since joining CBS News in the Washington bureau in 1972 range from Watergate through the 1981 assassination attempt on President Reagan to the 1991 Gulf War. She has a vast collection of journalism awards, including Emmy Awards for her interviews on FaceThe Nation and her 60 Minutes reporting, a Dupont, a Murrow, and a Lifetime Achievement Emmy.
Ediscovery leader Dan Kulakofsky will host a discussion with Ms. Stahl, with topics ranging from her extraordinary career to her perspective on current affairs as they relate to the legal field.
“We’re proud to welcome an American icon and pillar of journalism, Lesley Stahl, to help celebrate the accomplishments of our ediscovery community,” said Jennifer Bantelman, event host and Senior Director, Solutions Engineering at Zapproved. “Ms. Stahl represents a high watermark for professional achievement in her discipline, and I can’t think of a better way to start Legalweek than a festive night bringing together so many accomplished professionals.“
The Corporate Ediscovery Hero Awards honor in-house legal professionals who contribute excellence and leadership in advancing ediscovery processes and practices. Nominations in four unique categories were reviewed and scored by an independent panel of federal judges and ediscovery veterans. The ceremony will also honor this year’s Lifetime Achievement Award winner.
The Hero Awards were established in 2017 to recognize the often overlooked corporate legal, compliance, and IT team members who improve efficiency, reduce costs, and lower risk through creativity and innovation for their organizations. Past winners have included representatives from Fortune 500 companies such as Toyota, Hess, Caesars Entertainment, and ConocoPhillips.
The awards ceremony is open to ediscovery industry professionals. Registration information and event details can be found at zapproved.com/heroawards.
