No matter the event, your attendees are diverse individuals who crave engaging experiences that meet their unique needs. In order to deliver an event that speaks to them on their terms, event organizers need to strategically approach every facet of event design to ensure the vibrancy of this diversity is not only protected, but celebrated.
Join us as we discuss:
  • How every angle of planning an event (venue selection, promotion, speaker selection, etc.) impacts an individual’s ability to feel included
  • Tips for avoiding the pitfalls of outdated thinking
  • Opportunities that you can use to ensure vibrancy at your events
