What We’re Excited to See at ACC

ACC is jam-packed with awesome sessions. We’ll be surrounded by innovation, and we are very excited about anything and everything DEI-centered. Among many other sessions, we will be sure to attend:

Creating Change on DEI Within Your Legal Department 

A key focus of many in-house leaders today is ensuring that the corporate culture includes and values everyone through the retention and promotion of diverse talent within legal teams. Join this roundtable discussion as large law CLOs share strategies to help bring about greater diversity, equity, and inclusion within your legal departments. This conversation will be guided by a small group of CLO roundtable hosts who have led their own departments on a diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) journey.

  • Date: Monday, October 24th 
  • Time: 9am
  • Duration:  90 minutes
  • Where: Lily Meeting Room

Changes in the Billable Hour, Diversity, Succession Planning, and Rates

Law Departments and outside legal providers have a symbiotic relationship in many ways, but much can be improved. How can we take meaningful steps to improve the relationship and drive our businesses forward? Hear a panel of general counsel and outside legal providers talk through issues like the impact of the billable hour, rising rates, alternative fees, ways to truly drive diversity, and how to tackle succession planning. Join a candid group discussion focusing on the key topics and prospective next steps in our industry.

  • Date: Monday, October 24th 
  • Time: 2:30pm
  • Duration:  90 minutes
  • Where: Blossom Ballroom ABC

Both of these sessions focus on DEI in the legal world and actions the industry can take to increase it. 

See you in Vegas!

ACC is sure to be an exciting week. We’re looking forward to connecting with everyone!
