#RealTalk is BACK with a brand-new feel with our unplugged series. Come engage in deep-dive conversations around the DEI topics that matter most today.
Prior to the pandemic in early 2020, the medical meeting industry was already challenged with a shortage of medical meeting/event planners to service the increased number of programs over the prior years as we came out of the recession. Add to this shortage, a lack of diversity, equity & inclusion on several visual levels (i.e. race, ethnicity, age) as well as unseen disparities (i.e. physical and cultural to name a few). In this joint MPI-DEI Committee and MPI-MD Council #RealTalk Unplugged, we will look at why these disparities may exist and begin to identify potential strategies to attract a more diverse group of professionals to the industry.
