Global TEC Forum
The Global TEC Forum: Empowering Change in Technology, Education and Careers (“G-TEC”) addresses diversity, inclusion & equity 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 under-represented minorities 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, inclusion & equity 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 and inclusion challenges the tech industry faces, and strategically advance their professional brand and career.
2020 Global TEC Forum: Canceled
At MCCA, nothing is more important than the health and safety of our members, sponsors, employees and guests. Over the past few weeks, we have been closely monitoring the quickly evolving situation regarding the novel Coronavirus. In recent days, it has gone from an outbreak to a pandemic per experts and we are taking every precaution to ensure that our community is protected.
After careful consideration, we have decided to cancel the Global TEC Forum scheduled to take place in San Francisco at the Salesforce Tower on Monday, April 6, 2020. We were looking forward to connecting with everyone and to learn about how the technology industry is leading to improve diversity in our profession. We look forward to connecting with you in the future at our Creating Pathways to Diversity Conference and Diversity Gala in New York City on October 26-28, 2020.
Our thoughts remain with the communities and individuals affected by COVID-19.
