Join this candid and relevant dialogue about the value that diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) bring to the meeting and hospitality industries. Brought to you by MPI’s Diversity & Inclusion Advisory Board, this debut of the #RealTalk ongoing series is led by industry leaders doing the work for MPI and their own companies, amplifying their individual and collective voices to bring forward social and economic change. The conversation will feature authentic discussions and best practices relative to DEI structure, strategy, and succession planning, as well as evaluate measurement and success metrics.

Learner Outcomes:

1. Determine and assess an organization’s needs for a task force, committee, or board of directors position as paramount to its transformation

2. Reimagine revenue opportunities by measuring the return on investment of DEI implementation and practice

3. Execute a sustainable DEI strategy that will succeed current leaders, inspire future industry professionals, and help move organizations forward.
