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 Virtual Summit
At MCCA, nothing is more important than the health and safety of our members, sponsors, employees and guests. Due to the quickly evolving situation regarding COVID-19, we cancelled the Global TEC Forum scheduled to take place in San Francisco at the Salesforce Tower on Monday, April 6, 2020.
Over the past month, we have been working closely with our members, partners and sponsors to discuss how our community can #RiseUnited and come together to learn from each other and find solutions to the new challenges we now face in these unprecedented times.
We have partnered with In-House Focus to create the Global TEC Virtual Summit (“G-TEC Virtual Summit”) – an immersive day of programming that brings our community together to share ideas and strategies to navigate these uncharted territories. The G-TEC Virtual Summit combines CLEs, with creative breakout sessions including live Q&As, group discussions with legal leaders, virtual networking and more.
We hope you can join us on May 6 and learn about how the legal profession is leading and navigating our new reality.
Our thoughts remain with the communities and individuals affected by COVID-19.
