Monthly DEI Tidbits for November 2021

By: Jenny Ng, Director, Education | Nov 12, 2021

MPI-MN-DEI-Logo900DEI tidbit 8:  Honoring Religious Based Food and Beverage Requests

Honoring religious dietary requests is a way to be welcoming and inclusive such as with kosher/halal meals. These can be options collected during the registration process. 

There are many individual interpretations of what kosher/halal means and how to adhere. 

Clear communication is essential in ensuring a successful event such as asking what kosher or halal means to the attendee. For instance, confirm if special meals also include snacks breaks, food preparation, how it is delivered/presented, serving dishes/utensils, ingredients as these may need to be outsourced in advance by an approved caterer and discussed with the venue catering team.

For more resources about Kosher/halal meals, categories, and standards, check out Thrive Meetings.

DEI tidbit 9: Event Website and Materials

Reviewing your event website and materials sets the tone for your event and reviewing on a regular basis helps ensure that it is accessible. Things such as reviewing fonts, adding image descriptions, offering communications options such as chat all help! Other tips can be found here
