Proposed 4 Clock Hours Domain ​G: ​Meeting ​or ​Event ​Design

This ​training ​program ​focuses ​on ​practical ​actions ​that ​event ​planners ​take ​to ​create ​inclusive ​environments ​for ​events. ​As ​part ​of ​the ​learning ​experience, ​participants ​will ​explore ​the ​need ​for ​inclusion ​as ​well ​as ​consider ​what ​event ​participants ​may ​need ​in ​order ​to ​fully ​participate. ​The ​actions ​are ​couched ​in ​the ​framework ​of ​an ​event ​planner’s ​role ​as ​an ​inclusion ​broker, ​a ​professional ​who ​intentionally ​applies ​various ​strategies ​to ​support ​the ​participation ​of ​individuals ​and ​groups.

Learner outcomes:
• Describe ​key ​findings ​from ​MPI ​research ​on ​inclusion.
• Explain ​the ​business ​case ​for ​inclusion.
• Consider ​the ​many ​dimensions ​of ​diversity ​and ​how ​they ​can ​create ​strengths ​and ​pose ​challenges ​to ​create ​fully ​inclusive ​environments.
• Describe ​the ​role ​and ​strategies ​of ​an ​event ​planner ​as ​an ​Inclusion ​Broker.
• Given ​a ​case ​study, ​recommend ​actions ​meeting ​planners ​can ​take ​to ​create ​inclusive ​environments. ​
• Commit ​to ​taking ​actions ​that ​create ​an ​environment ​of ​inclusion ​by ​completing ​an ​Inclusive ​Action ​Plan ​(short ​term, ​medium ​term, ​long ​term)
