The death of George Floyd has caused the Meetings Industry to reevaluate how they are approaching diversity in meetings and events. Due to the exploitation of the word “diversity,” organizations should strive for inclusion and equity throughout. To reach this, the industry should broaden the circle of influence, listen to event stakeholders, and implement systems that execute a more inclusive culture. In terms of the social justice movement now taking place, it is suggested to follow company’s mission and if the event lacks diversity and equity it should reach out to organizations who can provide support and guidance on needed changes.
