Kim joins MMTC from the NAACP, where she served as General Counsel and Secretary.  A talented lawyer and advocate, Kim is an extraordinary leader who has served as President of the 100,000 member District of Columbia Bar Association as well as the National Bar Association, which is the oldest and largest national association of lawyers of color with a network of over 60,000 lawyers, judges, educators, and law students.

Among other priorities, Keenan will address the need to improve diversity in Silicon Valley, remove education and health disparities through technology, and preserve an open Internet that allows prioritization for applications such as emergency medical or telehealth requirements. Keenan, who is known for her deep commitment to mentoring next generation leaders, also has plans to strengthen and expand MMTC’s mentoring and training programs for lawyers and entrepreneurs.

We hope you will join us in this special welcome event! Register here by December 5th.
