“One of the ACC STL value propositions is to promote diversity and inclusion among our members, the companies our members represent, and within the legal community. ACC STL members represent corporations in a wide variety of industries with a global reach, and part of our commitment to our membership is to offer programming to network, educate and have fun,” said Toni Douaihy, 2018 ACC STL President, and Macy’s Vice President and Assistant General Counsel.
