Thank You!

What a special day we had at the United Nations on Tuesday, June 19, 2018. We had 200 attendees join us for our third annual Global Women in Law & Leadership event! Together, we are inspiring people from around the world to learn from one another and to collaborate in the name of progress. Just as the United Nations encourages nations to connect, ACC hopes to inspire similar collaboration in the legal community. The work of the ACC Foundation is making a difference. Our Women in the House (WITH) initiative has captured the attention of many ACC members; stay tuned as this program grows exponentially. Plus, the Foundation is excited to further its collaboration on the OnRamp In-House Fellowship with Diversity Lab and the in-house law departments who participate. This unique venture continues to help women who have taken a break in their career to re-enter the workforce. A heartfelt thank you to everyone who attended the events at the United Nations and to those who are already planning to join us again next year. It was an absolute pleasure to be in the distinguished company of so many women leaders, celebrating your accomplishments and generosity of spirit. Please consider how you can continue to go beyond breaking barriers, either by reaching out and helping other women achieve their goals or by participating in one of our initiatives to support women lawyers. We look forward to seeing you again in 2019! Save the Date!
