    Inaugural Meeting of DELTAS

    DELTAS was created by a group who are passionate about creating change within the legal IT community.

    Over the last thirty years, despite tremendous progress being made in Equality, Diversity & Inclusion within our everyday lives, a vast portion of professionals don’t believe that this is the case within the Legal IT community. Whether it be through media bias, education, personal experiences or individual expectations, diversity is still a challenge and one that we are moving to change.
