Proposed 1 Clock Hours Domain C: Risk Management

As a Meeting or Event Professional, you want to foster inclusion for employees, members, volunteers, and participants. What is legally or culturally expected varies state to state and it is fiscally responsible to improve event practices to meet these expectations. This program will teach meeting and event professionals how to keep attendees feeling safe, welcome, and included as well as how to implement free to cheap elements to foster an inclusive environment and meet expectations before accidentally excluding others.

Learner outcomes:

  • Know what you don't know to manage risk and unexpected exclusionary actions;
  • Utilize existing tools, resources, and spaces without having to spend any of your limited budget to foster inclusivity and a sense of belonging to increase retention; and
  • Develop new questions to address invisible needs.
