Diversity & Inclusion


MPI Orange County, stands for inclusion.

We embrace an inclusive business community of respect for all people regardless of national origin, race, religion, sex, gender, age, color, sexual orientation or disability. We are committed to being champions for equality as we continue this journey together.

Our chapter, and our greater meetings and events industry is made up of hundreds of thousands of individuals who strive to embody the highest level of teamwork, hospitality, and inclusion. Traits that we want to also see demonstrated around us in our nation and world.

We all have a role to play in finding solutions where everyone is treated with equal recognition and respect. The answers may not be in front of us now, but we can take the time to research, listen, and to learn. To share accurate information. To speak up and take helpful action.

For more information, the MPI Diversity & Inclusion committee have created a dynamic resource page available for everyone. This tool is constantly being updated and welcomes any contributions. MPI also hosts a free monthly webinar called REAL Talk which allows for open discussion with Thought Leaders in and out of our industry.
