ACC Honors Jackson Lewis as Network Sponsor of the Year

NEW YORK, NY (October 26, 2021) Nationwide employment law firm Jackson Lewis P.C. is pleased to announce the firm was named Outstanding Network Sponsor of the Year by the Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC), a global legal association representing more than 45,000 members in 85 countries, at the 2021 ACC Annual Meeting, held virtually. 

This year, among other initiatives, the firm was recognized for partnering with ACC's Employment and Labor Law Network (ELLN) to develop “RACE Talks: Realign Act Change Engage,” a 10-week racial equity education program focusing on individual transformation and change to ensure a more racially just workplace and society. The RACE Talks curriculum was created to educate about systemic racial issues, foster long-term change, and highlight specific actions to advance social justice in our society and workplace. The program included guided learning, specifically through weekly educational assignments; short anonymous reflection surveys; a diversity, inclusion, and bias workplace session; and facilitated live discussions. 

“We are very proud to once again be recognized as an Outstanding Network Sponsor of the Year by ACC,” said Firm Chair Kevin G. Lauri. “It is especially gratifying to be honored after partnering with ACC to develop the RACE Talks curriculum. We would like to thank ACC for supporting a program that challenges the legal industry to think differently about race and the concept of bias.”

The Outstanding Network Sponsor of the Year Award recognizes firms that have provided exceptional support to an ACC network, including assistance with a network’s quality of programs and development, and helping a network meet its goals. Jackson Lewis, a sponsor of ELLN, was recognized for providing network members with quality and timely information, resources, tools and guidance on a variety of workplace law issues. This is the second year in a row and the 11th year in total the firm has been recognized for our support of ACC’s ELLN.
