The Spirit of Inclusion goes beyond basic legal compliance to welcoming and embracing the many aspects of diversity and different perspectives that create powerful experiences and environments for problem-solving, innovation and success. Inclusion is the right thing to do … but it also enhances business value and profits for organizations when they send the right messages to audiences and embrace all the ways in which people are different.
MPI’s Inclusive Events Strategist certificate focuses on practical actions that meeting professionals on both sides of the marketplace can take to create inclusive environments at their events. Explore the different dimensions of diversity to ensure the full and respectful participation of all participants and attendees, as well as your role as an inclusion broker for the diverse groups you represent.
Explore recent MPI Foundation research conducted by the New York University Jonathan M. Tisch Center of Hospitality and discover where meeting professionals are excelling in the creation of welcoming environments, and the areas where they could improve in enhancing the experience for diverse groups. Meanwhile, gain access to more than 350 best practices for designing and executing inclusive experiences that embrace all your diverse attendees.
MPI’s focus is not on changing individual beliefs or ideas. Our goal is to explore the topic of inclusion and its relationship to the success of events and to provide strategies and actions that you can take to create inclusive experiences.
