The shift to virtual events presents a fresh set of diversity & inclusion challenges (and opportunities!). Events are all about bringing people together and human connection—and yet, too often, our events end up excluding marginalized groups from the table. We have the best intentions, but may lack awareness and understanding. The goal of this panel is to bridge that knowledge gap and share strategies and best practices, so that future virtual events can be truly inclusive.

Join our expert panel to learn the latest inclusive practices for virtual and hybrid events—and how we can harness events to promote awareness and respect.

Attendees will walk away with:

  • Actionable strategies they can implement now at their virtual events
  • Planning techniques to promote diversity & inclusion
  • Marketing best practices to signal an inclusive message for your virtual event
