CPD Intensive 2024: Keynote: Leveraging Technology
CPD Intensive 2024: Keynote: Leveraging Technology
The Law institute of Victoria presents CPD Intensive 2024, our flagship CPD event for the 2024 calendar.

Jess Wilson demonstrates how a tech entrepreneur can leverage the collective impact of a community of like-minded people. She co-founded Women Making Waves, a tech company funding and scaling women’s rights in Australia and the United States introducing a new demographic to philanthropy, working with law reform experts who have changed an accumulative 45+ laws and counting. The company was inspired by Jess’s personal story of how she was sexually assaulted by a prospect investor whilst raising money. Jess decided to seek justice for herself and started a lawsuit which took 18 months working with lawyers, barristers and ultimately - won. 

But Jess didn’t stop there, she took what she learnt first-hand navigating the legal system and is now actively leveraging technology and creating a movement to further fund women’s rights law reform partnering with the likes of Google, Airbnb, Tiktok and The Chopra Foundation's Deepak Chopra to amplify her message.

Jess will share her story and the innovative models that are having an impact on advocacy and efficacy in changing laws around the world.
