Meeting Professionals International’s Diversity & Inclusion Advisory Committee is working on the creation of a dynamic set of resources to help meeting professionals advocate and advance these causes relevant to all the dimensions of diversity.
MPI’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion committee is composed of volunteer members that have identified three key initiatives for 2021:
Develop more accessible information, professional development and guidance material for chapters to develop DEI initiatives, including a robust resource page and a monthly MPI #RealTalk dialogue webinar series.
Strengthen connection with external and internal DEI communities, host DEI industry events, and increase presence of the DEI committee at events such as the World Education Congress, Chapter Business Summit and IMEX.
Align DEI activities, communities, efforts under one staff representative with a clear hierarchy, process and support, including development of a regional ambassador subcommittee.
