O n February 2, 2018, ACC Tampa Bay held its inaugural Women’s In-house Counsel Group meeting at the Epicurean Hotel. Over 60 chapter members attended this special luncheon program and left inspired and invigorated.

The chapter was honored to have a dynamic, engaging, and accomplished speaker, Marlene Gordon, general counsel of Bacardi North America, share her personal and professional story. Gordon is the 2018 Leadership Award Recipient of the National Association of Women’s Lawyers.

Other highlights included a networking and brainstorming session to determine the direction of the group moving forward. The chapter gives special thanks to Christine Howard, managing partner of Fisher Phillips’ Tampa office, for sponsoring this event and her firm’s efforts in supporting the group.

Please be on the lookout for future Women’s In-house Counsel Group events that will serve to highlight and empower the women leaders in the chapter and community.
