The Minority Corporate Counsel Association holds exceptional events and conferences throughout the year that focus on networking, career development, education and job training. Attendees learn, connect and are inspired. Below is a list of our upcoming events and programs. We hope to see you there.
Global Tec Forum
Cleveland Inclusion Summit
Deadline: September 1, 2020
We have been asked by Major, Lindsey & Africa to encourage our members to participate in their 2020 Partner Compensation Survey, the sixth in their biennial series that began in 2010. The Survey continues to be the industry’s most comprehensive study of partner compensation and they have been proud to provide the Survey results to the legal community for free. They are especially interested in increasing the response rate of women and under-represented minorities so that they, and the industry, can draw more meaningful conclusions from the data.
As with any survey, the more people who participate, the better the data. And as the legal industry continues to feel the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, we believe it’s critically important for the industry to have data for the 2019 compensation year (the measuring point for the 2020 survey) to serve as a benchmark for pre-COVID and post-COVID life.
Below is a link to the confidential Survey. Survey Deadline: September 1,2020.
MLA is partnering with Acritas, a legal research firm, to conduct the Survey so that all respondents may answer confidentially and anonymously. (The Survey is sent to every Am Law 200 partner in the U.S., and has nothing to do with whether the individual has ever contacted or worked with MLA.) At no time has MLA or any other organization ever been made aware of respondents’ names or firms, either individually or in the aggregate.
We are proud to announce that MCCA has partnered with the Equilar Diversity Network (EDN) to launch a data campaign to aggregate additional measures of diversity, specifically race/ethnicity. We’d like to invite MCCA members to participate in this important campaign, and encourage you to ask your executive and board member colleagues to do the same, to increase transparency around ethnic representation on corporate boards and the C-suite.
Members can claim their profiles on Equilar’s BoardEdge platform, which hosts more than 500,000 executive and board member profiles for board search opportunities. By self-selecting ethnicity, participants are supporting a data-driven approach to increase board diversity while also making profiles more accessible when diverse candidates are searched.
In partnership with Equilar, we’ll be releasing a report this fall on our progress. We hope you take a moment to participate, and we look forward to continuing our important work together.
