Program Overview

As an event organizer, prioritizing diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) often means bringing groups of attendees, speakers, vendors, and suppliers together from different backgrounds, identities, and experiences. But there is still work to be done when it comes to activating allies internally and externally, and planning events that enact diverse, equitable, and inclusive behaviors.

This new multi-week online professional development course, produced in partnership with MPI, is designed for industry professionals looking to deepen their understanding, and knowledge of, DEI practices as core practices both within their events and organizations.

Going beyond the fundamentals of diverse event speaker rosters, inclusive marketing, and accessibility requirements, in this course you’ll gain skills to recognize, approach, intervene, and dismantle systems and processes that aren’t diverse, equitable, or inclusive.

From developing a workplace culture that supports a strategic commitment to DEI and building partnerships to tools and resources to use along the way, this course provides the strategies and skills to successfully become a DEI champion throughout the entire event planning process and within your organization.
