Global Women in Law & Leadership Afternoon Symposium, Evening
Reception and Honors Dinner 

Please join us for what promises to be an incredible event.  The Global Women in Law & Leadership Symposium and Reception and Honors Dinner will bring together high-level professionals to delve into the many issues women face in the workplace and particularly in the corporate legal profession.  The Symposium, hosted in collaboration with the ACC NYC Chapter Women's Group, will feature prominent discussions surrounding women in the workplace. Following the Symposium, the dinner will feature distinguished honorees who have made significant contributions to the legal profession, excel as leaders and have been instrumental in advancing opportunities for women around the world.

This special event will take place on Tuesday, June 19, 2018 from 2:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. in the Delegates Dining Room at the United Nations. During the Reception and Honors Dinner, the honorees will provide our audience with a glimpse of how they overcame traditional barriers to success and how they are helping future generations of women professionals do the same.  It is no coincidence we have chosen the prestigious United Nations as our venue for this program.  The UN's Sustainable Development Goals 5 and 10 are aligned with the ACC Foundation's mission and we will work tirelessly to support this effort.

** Please Note:  all guest must be registered no later than Tuesday, June 12th in order to comply with the UN's security policy - NO EXCEPTIONS. **
