2020 Global TEC Forum

The Global TEC Forum: Empowering Change in Technology, Education and Careers (G-TEC) addresses diversity, inclusion & equity challenges in the tech industry and the latest disruptions and challenges facing the legal profession. There has been criticism of tech companies not doing enough to promote diversity, inclusion & equity. There is much to be done but, let there be no mistake there are tech companies, who are leading, engaged and pushing boundaries.

Salesforce, will be generously hosting MCCA’s 5th Annual G-TEC and the agenda will focus on leaders in the industry and best practices in improving diversity, inclusion & equity from leading companies. Our goal is to develop more effective strategies to improve diversity, inclusion & equity at the highest levels in companies and firms.

Justification Toolkit

You recognize the value of attending Global TEC Forum, but how do you convey that message to your manager? With budgetary constraints and increased scrutiny on business travel, gaining approval to attend conferences can sometimes pose a challenge. It is important to demonstrate the benefits of attending in order to justify the expense. Use MCCA’s G-TEC Justification Toolkit to help you make the ask, prepare for G-TEC, and get the most from our conference and your membership.
