Honorably discharged from the United States Army following 12 years of service, Chiriga Moore, affectionately known as Zoe (pronounced ZOH) completed an M.S. in Hospitality, Recreation and Tourism then started an event planning company in Oakland, CA. Learning that Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) were not prioritized in the meetings, events, and tourism industry, she became an advocate to help improve dialogue and action in the areas of supplier diversity, organizational culture, and diverse representation in leadership. Initially, spearheading the formation of an Inclusion & Diversity committee with MPI’s Northern California Chapter, she decided to become a Certified Diversity Practitioner (CDP) to deepen her knowledge. Having dissolved her company, LB Alliance due to COVID 19, she became the co-founder of CADAZO Consulting Group, a women-owned business that is evolving the hospitality industry through training, workshops, and consulting. As an Inclusive Event Strategist & Consultant she is helping leaders of organizations define their strategic commitment to EDI through her speaking, writing and serving on committees. The outgoing co-chair for MPIs Global Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Advisory Committee, Zoe is committed to holding industry leaders accountable and ensuring that change is both measurable and sustainable. A contributing writer to The Meeting Professional and Meetings Today. Zoe Moore resides in Marietta, GA with her 16-year-old son, Jourden Moore. She loves homemade chocolate chip cookies, photography, and traveling.
