ADA, Okla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--LegalShield, one of North America’s leading providers of affordable legal plans for individuals, families and small businesses, announced today the launch of “Ladies of Justice,” a companywide initiative to promote female entrepreneurship, community, personal growth and development, and advance the mission to increase affordable access to justice for all. For over 46 years, LegalShield has empowered people not only to live free under the law, but to create their own legacy, make a living and make a difference. As a growing number of women make the leap to starting their own businesses, LegalShield offers them a way to have a rewarding career without sacrificing income, family life or growth potential.
“It’s no surprise that more and more women from all backgrounds, ages, and walks of life are opting to start their own business. But doing so often comes at the expense of intangible benefits like femtorship, skills development and other valuable education. LegalShield provides an immensely rewarding opportunity that allows every woman to grow and thrive on her own terms,” said Melissa Wilder, Vice President & Executive Chairwoman, Ladies of Justice. “The Ladies of Justice community aims to be inclusive; we are women helping women discover their worth, create income and legacy, and own a seat at the table. There is no limit to what we can achieve together.”
According to the most recent Kauffman Index of Startup Activity, the percentage of women entrepreneurs has seen the biggest increase in almost 20 years. “We look forward to playing a role in empowering the next generation of female business owners, and welcoming them to the LegalShield family. Every woman can take advantage of our opportunity for success,” affirmed Kathy Pinson, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer.
The Ladies of Justice initiative will include customized business tools as well as engaging, family-friendly events, brunches, luncheons and more. Additional details can be found at ladiesofjustice.com.
