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
Thank you to the MCCA Board, N-GEN Advisory Board, members, speakers, and sponsors for attending and supporting our virtual Global TEC Forum! A special thanks to Andrew Dick and his team at In-House Focus for designing our platform in record time, helping MCCA deliver this new and different user experience to over 350 people!
The virtual G-TEC was the first of its kind and provided attendees an opportunity to speak directly with 40+ legal leaders on a virtual platform. We were able to bring our community together and discuss how diversity, inclusion and equity has been affected by this global pandemic and how we can reach across the aisle and unite as one voice and collectively amplify our efforts.
