Hoskins explains how Litera plans to do this and how diversity is very important to herself and the Litera team . She also talks about her career and how she started out as an active-duty officer in the US Army , which she said was more male-dominated than maybe any other industry she has worked in since . Hoskins went on to talk about the importance of mentorship . Turn to page 44 to find out more .
