Proposed 1 Clock Hour Strategic Domain G: Meeting or Event Design
It’s a race against time to save your event from from…The Killer Manel! As absurd as it seems, the phenomenon of session panels populated only with men is an all-too-familiar reality for event and conference organizers. “Manels” are really a symptom of larger societal trends which, overall, result in underrepresentation of women, people of color, people of different physical capabilities and other groups in leadership roles. The session will highlight the importance of reflecting diverse viewpoints and perspectives – and demonstrate steps any meeting professional can take to ensure a proactive approach to creating a diverse and inclusive experience for all speakers.
