GENERAL COUNSEL SUMMIT

The General Counsel Summit (GCS) combines professional development and leadership programs with networking events to meet peers, exchange ideas, and launch legal careers to the next level. We are reinventing GCS to offer customized professional development programs for diverse senior in-house counsel led by a faculty comprised of diverse Fortune 500 general counsels. Sessions will provide guidance on how to navigate the executive search and vetting processes, interviewing with the CEO, leadership qualities of a Fortune 500 general counsel, and how to own your seat in the boardroom. GCS’ purpose is to provide senior attorneys the skills and knowledge to move the needle at the top—on getting more people into the boardrooms where the decisions are made and the future is built.

Global TEC Forum

The Global TEC Forum: Empowering Change in Technology, Education and Careers (“G-TEC”) addresses diversity, equity, and inclusion in the tech industry and the latest disruptions and challenges facing the legal profession. It was a direct response to the lack of diversity in the tech industry and specifically to general counsel who shared that it was a challenge recruiting and retaining underrepresented racial/ethnic groups for their departments and as outside counsel. G-TEC is one way that MCCA is addressing these challenges by promoting the brightest women and diverse talent in the industry. In addition to continuing legal education focused on diversity, equity and inclusion in tech, MCCA provides an opportunity for attorneys to grow their networks in a small intimate setting such as G-TEC. The ultimate goal for each attendee is to cultivate professional relationships, learn about the latest programs and research addressing the diversity, equity and inclusion challenges the tech industry faces, and strategically advance their professional brand and career.

ROADSHOWS

In addition to our major conferences and events, MCCA hosts roadshows throughout the country, featuring thoughtful roundtables that focus on regional issues of diversity and inclusion, specifically recruiting, retention and promotion of diverse attorneys. These roadshows are an opportunity to engage the membership and connect with local leaders to learn about their concerns, share best practices, and discuss sustainable solutions.

On November 1, 2017, MCCA stopped in Seattle to celebrate our 20th Anniversary with our members in Seattle and to learn about best practices in corporate legal departments and how outside counsel can partner with clients to improve diversity in our profession.
