Inclusion Reimagined: Global Meetings Industry Day Education Event

April 11, 2024
5:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Convene 101 Park
101 Park Avenue
New York, New York

MPI Greater New York Chapter, in collaboration with SITE Northeast, Live Events Coalition, ILEA New York, NYIAEE, HSMAIGNY, NYPCMA and the National Society of Black Wedding & Event Professionals, invites you to join us in celebrating Global Meetings Industry Day on April 11, 2024, at Convene's newly renovated event space - 101 Park Avenue!

Innovative, collaborative, and strategic diversity and inclusion (D&I) thought leader, Shalynne Jackson, will lead us in a deep dive into what Diversity & Inclusion is and is not. It is myth-busting in an interactive, disarming way! Following her talk, she will be moderating a panel of suppliers and planners to get their take on how they are incorporating D&I initiatives within their respective fields, and companies, and designing meetings in an inclusive manner.

Schedule of Events: 

5pm to 6pm: Welcome Reception & CSR Activity

6pm to 7:15pm: Inclusion Reimagined Deep Dive & Panel 

7:15pm to 8pm: Networking Reception 


In addition to our education, please join us during the welcome reception to help create bookmarks and bookplates to donate to a local school.

Reading is integral to a child’s development. It stimulates their imagination, expands their understanding of the world, and helps to develop language skills. It also encourages the development of empathy, confidence, memory and vocabulary! However, roughly one in four children in the United States grow up without learning how to read. Your book accessories will be used to improve child literacy!

Thank you to our sponsors, Caesars, Convene and Impact 4 Good, for your contributions to a successful GMID 2024.
