MCCA Diversity Gala

Coinciding with the Creating Pathways to Diversity® Conference, is the annual Diversity Gala. The funds raised from our Diversity Gala support MCCA’s research, conferences and professional development programming throughout the year. The Gala features an elegant networking reception and an awards program honoring individuals, corporate legal departments and law firms championing diversity and inclusion in the legal profession.
