Register for "Inclusion Beyond the Law" As a meeting or event professional, you want to foster inclusion for employees, members, volunteers and participants. What is legally or culturally expected varies state to state, and it is fiscally responsible to improve event practices to meet these expectations. This program will teach meeting and event professionals how to keep attendees feeling safe, welcome and included as well as how to implement free to cheap elements to foster an inclusive environment and meet expectations before accidentally excluding others. Learning Objectives:
  1. Know what you don’t know to manage rise and unexpected exclusionary actions.
  2. Utilize existing tools, resources and spaces without having to spend any of your limited budget to foster inclusivity and a sense of belonging to increase retention.
  3. Develop new questions to address invisible needs.
