MCCA Mission Statement
MCCA is committed to advancing the hiring, retention and promotion of diverse lawyers in law departments and law firms by providing research, best practices, professional development and training; and through pipeline initiatives.
To make the next generation of legal leaders as diverse as the world we live in.
As the preeminent voice on diversity issues in the legal profession, MCCA accomplishes its mission through industry-shaping publications, research, and training, innovative pipeline initiatives, and curated events designed to connect its members to thought-leaders and one another. MCCA takes an inclusive approach to the definition of “diversity.” Therefore, its research and training addresses issues of race/ ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, disability status and generational differences which impact the legal profession’s workforce.
Over the years, MCCA’s thought leadership has been widely recognized. The association has received several awards including recognition by the Association of Corporate Counsel, the National LGBT Bar Association, the National Minority Business Council, Inc. and the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
