Ladies Techin' Control

Ladies Techin' Control

Brace yourselves. Women are here (and not just for the winter—WOOHOO!). Women’s day is one of our favorite holidays because women and girls around the world collectively declare love for our sisters from other misters. The world marches today and takes sexism head-on, except in China, where the men can be found hiking in heels. Here at Alt Legal, we recognize the social, political, economic, and cultural achievements and the continuing contributions made by women. Best of all, we practice what we preach. Alt Legal, an IP docketing software company, is led by a team that is committed to developing a diverse culture that is fair, inclusive, and rewarding.
