2020 MCCA VIRTUAL DIVERSITY GALA

MCCA would like to thank our Board, NGEN Advisory Board, honorees, members, sponsors and partners for your generous support and helping us #RiseUnited at the 2020 MCCA Virtual Diversity Gala. Once again we gathered to celebrate and honor individuals, companies and law firms who have demonstrated leadership in improving diversity, inclusion and equity and paved the way to create more opportunities for those who have been under-represented.

We are at a pivotal moment. In the streets, people are rising united to call for systemic change. And it’s up to those on the inside to carry their message forward, in our businesses and in our boardrooms so that we can activate change together. We have to stop seeing DEI as a nice-to-have, and see it for the need-to-have that it has always been. We must make diversity, equity and inclusion a leading–not a lagging– indicator in everything that we do. Let’s continue to make sustainable goals for DEI in our own organizations and then hold ourselves accountable for the outcomes we’ve set.

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.

Virtual Diversity Gala.
