The Minority Corporate Counsel Association (MCCA) was founded in 1997 to advocate for the expanded hiring, retention, and promotion of minority attorneys in corporate law departments and the law firms that serve them. Through the collection and dissemination of information about diversity in the legal profession, MCCA takes an inclusive approach to the definition of “diversity.” MCCA’s research addresses issues of race/ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, disability status, and generational differences which impact the legal profession’s workforce.
MCCA advances its mission through programs and initiatives designed to highlight the importance of diversity and serve as an ongoing resource for the legal profession. Extensive research and white papers address a broad range of issues, including creating successful pathways to diversity, reporting on current diversity data of corporate legal departments, and surveys that address the success of bias interrupters in the workplace. Trainings and facilitations are delivered by members of the MCCA team and consultants with applicable content knowledge.
The Director of Finance and Administration (DFA) reports to the President & CEO and manages the financial portfolio for MCCA’s $3.6 million annual revenue and investments and $3.3 million in reserves. Working with an engaged President & CEO and strong Board of Directors, the DFA will be responsible for developing and analyzing all reports and providing timely and relevant budget projections that will be used to evaluate MCCA’s effectiveness and drive informed decisions about MCCA’s future. The DFA will continue MCCA’s record of strong financials and clean audits. The ideal candidate will be curious, engaged, and credible. Additionally, the DFA will bring the ability to translate financial terminology and concepts into language all staff can understand so that colleagues will see the DFA as a strong resource. While the DFA is initially an individual contributor, MCCA expects to add a Senior Accountant to the organization to support the work of the DFA.
The Director of Finance and Administration will be comfortable in a creative, fast-paced environment, working with a team and board that are highly motivated and knowledgeable yet collaborative and supportive. This position is based in D.C., with the ability to work remotely until able to safely relocate there.
The ideal candidate must bring a genuine and enthusiastic commitment to the mission and values of MCCA with at least seven to ten years of experience leading finance and accounting; experience managing staff; experience in a nonprofit organization will be an advantage. In addition, this person must bring a bachelor’s degree in a related field; an advanced degree would be an advantage.
