Veta T. Richardson is the President and Chief Executive Officer of the Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC). Headquartered in Washington, D.C., ACC is the world's largest bar association dedicated exclusively to serving the interests of in-house counsel. With an international membership of more than 35,000 in-house lawyers at more than 10,000 organizations in over 85 countries, ACC serves as the "voice of the in-house bar" for corporate lawyers at 98 percent of the Fortune 100 and 45 percent of the Global 1000.

With more than 55 chapter operations around the world, Richardson's top priority at ACC involves increasing the organization's global footprint and charting ACC through a strategic plan and vision geared to address the unique needs and challenges of corporate lawyers.

Previously, as executive director of the Minority Corporate Counsel Association (MCCA) from 2001-2011, Richardson raised the bar on the advancement of diversity and inclusion in the legal profession through the establishment of a multi-pronged platform that consisted of groundbreaking research and white papers; thought provoking publications, such as Diversity & the Bar; and best-in-class programs, services and networking events. Under her leadership, the MCCA emerged as a thought leader on diversity, recruitment and retention and pipeline initiatives for multinational corporations around the world.
