Watch our conversation with Michelle Hobby, Program Manager at National Industries for the Blind as we discussed our industry & DE&I. Industries invest over $8 billion annually in DE&I, but often we do not see that spend reflected in their events. The one thing all events have in common is that attendees have diverse backgrounds and experiences. They crave engaging events 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.

We discussed:

– 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– Tips for avoiding the pitfalls of outdated thinking

– Strategies that you can use to ensure vibrancy at your events
