2021 MCCA VIRTUAL DIVERSITY GALA

MCCA would like to thank our Board, N-GEN Advisory Board, Host Committee, honorees, members, sponsors, and partners for your generous support and for helping us #InspireProgress and #AccelerateImpact at the 2021 MCCA Virtual Diversity Gala. Once again we gathered to celebrate and honor individuals, companies, and law firms who have demonstrated leadership in improving diversity, equity, and inclusion and paved the way to create more opportunities for those who have been under-represented.

By attending the Gala, you have demonstrated that you are willing to do the hard, day-to-day work of diversifying our country’s corporate sector. It’s not the kind of work that’ll make the evening news—but it’s the work that will change the face of our profession in the long run.

From all of us at MCCA, again, thank you so much for your commitment, engagement, passion, and support.

Please add events@mcca.com to your Address Book or Contacts to receive any future communications regarding the Virtual Diversity Gala.
