Overview (Program Summary)

A program hosted by:

ACC Greater Philadelphia

Businesses and corporations dedicated to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (“DEI”) initiatives stand at a crossroads with such efforts increasingly coming under attack from powerful outside groups.  In such a climate, it is imperative for in-house attorneys to arm themselves with legally sound strategies to defend and advance these crucial principles.

The December 6, 2024 Diversity Summit presented by the Greater Philadelphia Chapter of the Association of Corporate Counsel - “DEI Under Siege: Legally Compliant Strategies to Combat the Attack on DEI Initiativeswill focus on equipping legal professionals with the tools and knowledge to navigate the complex landscape of challenges posed by these outside forces.  

Please join an audience of in-house counsel from a wide range of businesses in the Greater Philadelphia Area to have meaningful conversations around these topics.

This event will feature 5 educational sessions presented by our sponsors, followed by a networking cocktail reception.
