WASHINGTON ? Carl Quintanilla, anchor of CNBC’s "Squawk on the Street” program (M-F, 9 am-12 pm ET), will emcee the Diversity Honors Gala in New York City on September 17. Conducted by the Minority Corporate Counsel Association (MCCA), the gala will recognize legal departments and law firms from across the country, and MCCA will bestow its prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award.

Taking place at the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, the Diversity Honors Gala will showcase diversity leaders in the legal profession.

MCCA will also recognize diversity innovators, corporate legal departments, law firms or legal bar associations, which implement outstanding diversity programs.
