The meeting and event industry has the power to create positive change and promote inclusion, diversity and equity globally.  MPI’s Diversity & Inclusion Advisory Committee is working on the creation of a dynamic set of resources to help meeting professionals advocate and advance these causes relevant to all the dimensions of diversity. Given current events, the committee has fast-tracked these resources related to racial equity and justice to help meeting professionals in their efforts to be allies to the Black community.  These resources are only the beginning. In the coming months, more resources related to additional dimensions of diversity will be included on this page and will serve as a living resource that further the advancement of all peoples.
