This year we saw companies take a stand when it comes to JUSTICE, EQUITY, DIVERSITY, and INCLUSION.
Whether it was a black square on social media, a post to celebrate Pride Month, or highlighting their women leaders on International Women's Day, even the largest corporations realized they can no longer remain silent when it comes to issues facing marginalized groups.
However, taking a stand means more than just saying a cause is supported; there must also be action for there to be change.
Join this eclectic and powerful group of event professionals as they have a discussion about their own personal experiences within the industry, the changes they have seen over the course of their careers, common misconceptions, and what others in the hospitality industry can do—and are doing—to ensure that their staffs, vendor lists, and clients are truly diversified.
