diversity in the tech industry
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.
2021 VIRTUAL GLOBAL TEC FORUM
MCCA would like to thank the MCCA Board, N-GEN Advisory Board, G-TEC Advisory Council, members, speakers, and Title Sponsor VMware for attending and supporting the 2021 Virtual Global TEC Forum on April 14, 2021! This event brought together more than 350 people for a full day of virtual and interactive experiences!
G-TEC provided attendees with the opportunity to speak directly with legal leaders through a virtual platform which addressed complex issues such as, what courses of action are leaders implementing to build a more diverse, equitable and inclusive workplace; how attorneys should think critically about the ethics surrounding AI and racism; the importance of having diversity in our Boardrooms and C-Suites; and how to step up and show up for black female attorneys!
