Our guest today is the COO of Lawlytics, Anita Malik.
Anita has over 15 years of experience leading operations, marketing, and product development at a number of startup organizations and also at Arizona State University, where she served as Deputy Director for the school’s business journalism institute.
Her operational excellence and digital background have helped her lead two Arizona startups through successful acquisitions, as COO at ClearVoice and COO at LawLytics.
Anita is also passionate about creating communities for social change. She did this as Founder and Editor of East West magazine, a nationally-acclaimed print and online publication focused on the Asian American experience.
She was a recurring segment guest on NPR’s “Tell Me More,” with the editors of Latina, Essence, and others to discuss our country’s changing demographic and the untold stories.
More recently, Anita built digital communities for change as a 2018 nominee for Congress. She is also a board member for Moms in Office and the National Council of Jewish Women, Arizona. Her most important role though is mom to 8-year-old Wade, 7-year-old Avery, and fur baby Marky.
