#RealTalk is BACK! Come engage in deep-dive conversations around the DEI topics that matter most today. It’s been more than a year of conversations and awareness around the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities and the challenges that continue to be experienced. There remains, however, a proverbial “Bamboo Ceiling” for AAPI individuals still challenged by underrepresentation and lack of inclusion and voice in visible and critical industry leadership positions. Please join leading AAPI thought leaders and an ally in this important discussion to understand their experiences and to develop thinking and actions to learn to create inclusion for the AAPI and other underrepresented groups in our industry.
During this session, you will...
Listen to personal stories of experiences and leadership journeys of AAPI colleagues, develop a greater understanding of obstacles.
Become aware of barriers and methods by which we each can advance actions to leadership.
Set action steps with knowledge gained from the discussion to greater inclusion in the meetings and events industry for those currently underrepresented.
