Summit Professional Networks, a b-to-b media company serving the insurance, finance and legal markets, has launched a new channel aimed at women in law.
The new site, WIPLNET.com, short for Women, Influence & Power Network, will exist as a channel within SPN’s main legal brand Inside Counsel.
The site will support the WIPL Network, which launched as a foundation in 2012 to further the advancement of women in the legal field through a series of events.
Featured on the site is a tool called 5/165 PowerTron, which tracks general counsel appointments and the percentage of female general counsel in Fortune 500 companies.
The brand is also launching a new weekly newsletter for the WIPL Network.
"Women in the legal industry are well-positioned for advancement with a confluence of factors impacting this trend," says Inside Counsel editor-in-chief Erin Harrison in a statement. "The WIPL digital portal will stay on top of the latest issues, tracing the most critical and timely developments impacting women in the legal field."
