Session 2C ‘Moving the Needle forward on Diversity and Inclusion: Stories from the Field” (Download Presentation)
Session brought to you by: Association for Women in Events

We live and work in increasingly diverse cities and communities that do not necessarily reflect our workplaces. For example, women are most of the workforce in the meetings and events industry; however, the majority of managers and executives are men. The disparity is greater when other factors are considered such as race, sexual orientation, gender identity, and accessibility needs.  

What are the reasons for these disparities and how can we create workplaces that are reflective of our communities? Our panelists will discuss the successes, opportunities, and challenges of diversity and inclusion (D&I) in the workplace.  Topics will include the various dimensions of diversity, opportunities to enhance inclusion, and the relative impact of D&I strategies.
