Eyes Wide Shut: Debunking the MYTHS of Human Trafficking and what we can do to FIGHT it. | Malinda Harrell
Trafficking in persons is a serious crime and a grave violation of human rights. Every year, thousands of men, women, and children fall into the hands of traffickers, in their own countries and abroad. Almost every country in the world is affected by trafficking, whether as a country of origin, transit, or destination for victims. The Meetings industry is at the frontline of a battle to combat human trafficking with an increasing number of hospitality brands and organizations pledging to fight sexual and labor exploitation. In this brief session, we will break down some of the most common misconceptions and identify resources that we can implement NOW to be a part of the fight to prevent and end Human Trafficking and Slavery.
Radically Safe Events: Creating meetings and events where attendees thrive as their whole selves, creativity is encouraged, and feedback feels welcomed. | Tim Mousseau
People crave safety. When your attendees feel safe, they are more engaged, build longer-lasting connections, and experience a more profound sense of belonging. Creating safe events involves more than preventing intentionally harmful behaviors. Without the right approach, it is easy to miss out on the routine actions, policy gaps, and cultural norms that prevent people from feeling safe. In turn, attendees feel undervalued, withhold critical feedback, and stop attending future events.
Where feelings of safety are vital to thriving communities, instilling safety doesn't happen by chance.
Applying the Radically Safe Framework, Tim will walk members through a three-step process that teaches actionable skills while addressing rooted issues to ensure immediate and ongoing feelings of safety, regardless of external factors, stresses, or volatility.
