The Fish Doesn’t Know It’s Wet

What companies get wrong about diversity, inclusion and belonging, and how you as the meeting planner can help them get it right

Companies in the U.S. invest about $8B a year on Diversity Training. But study after study indicates that they don’t work. Why? And what do we need to do differently?

Join MPI Washington State Chapter and our featured Keynote speaker, Nancy D. Solomon, Founder and CEO of WomenThink.com and The Leadership Incubator in Seattle, for an engaging presentation.

Creating warm and welcoming experiences for all attendees at events is very important and MPIWSC is committed to advancing the progress related to Diversity and Inclusion.  The topic is professional, political and personal, all at the same time. The issues might be confusing, exasperating and overwhelming but they are also solvable. In this one-hour presentation you will learn:

1.    How to identify diversity and inclusion obstacles and potential areas for improvement within your organization.

2.    Three ways to ensure your organization and/or event is truly diverse and inclusive of all people.

3.    How to create a culture where people say, “I’m in!”
