ACC Presents: Building a Diverse Leadership Pipeline and Disrupting General Counsel Demographics
Simply put, general counsel of Fortune 500 companies are sorely lacking in diversity and fail to reflect society. Empowering diverse, rising stars in legal departments to become general counsel has never been more important. It is imperative that legal departments, in cooperation with external organizations, develop succession plans and talent management initiatives with diversity in mind. Join this panel of in-house counsel dedicated to increasing diversity among Fortune 500 general counsel to explore not only the importance of diversity at the general counsel level, but how we can achieve a more balanced representation.

|2:40 - 3:40pm||Transcending Gender: Helping Your Organization Prepare for an Increasingly Non-Binary World|
Is your company collecting gender information for its employees or even your customers? If so, is the collection binary (male/female)? If you answered yes to either of these questions, your company may need to do some rethinking. While federal laws are stuck in the male/female paradigm, the ground is shifting at the state and local level. This session will cover the following key areas, in addition to your questions: How did we get here? We’ll discuss why organizations capture gender information in the first place and whether they need to keep doing so; Where do we go from here? We’ll cover the increasing tension between federal reporting requirements and progressive state and local reforms, and discuss what options are available to organizations that want to move beyond binary data collection. We’ll also cover practical, every-day concerns like best practices regarding gender non-binary staff, preferred pronouns, facilities usage, privacy, and communications strategy.
