The mission of the Minority Corporate Counsel Association (MCCA) is to advocate for the expanded hiring, promotion, and retention of minority attorneys in corporate legal departments and the law firms that they retain. Since its founding in 1997, MCCA has emerged as a knowledge leader on diversity issues, and its programs and initiatives cover a wide range of diversity management issues, with an emphasis on the professional challenges faced by race/ethnic minorities; women; lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender lawyers; people with disabilities; and multi-generational workforces. MCCA furthers its mission by publishing research to recognize and promote diversity efforts and related best practices in the legal profession, and by honoring innovative diversity programs.
