C28 - Black Meeting Professionals Dialogue

‐ Jun 15, 2023 3:40pm

Last year, AsianHospitality.com reported that Black hospitality professionals were negatively impacted by COVID in high numbers. So, in addition to racism, micro-aggressions and other workplace challenges, we have had to re-set ourselves in the industry overall. Join this panel of global hospitality leaders to discuss the status of Blacks/African-Americans in the meeting industry. Learn what can be done to improve the low percentages of Black professionals who are gaining top-level positions. Learn how racism has impacted the panelists and how they have moved beyond the written diversity/DEI policies that are posted by many companies but not implemented.

Learner Outcomes:

  • Navigate racism and micro-aggressions and find mentors and allies in your career.
  • Find community and that you are not alone. Even those in top executive positions experience the same things, yet have found success.
  • Learn the ways that the MPI Black Meeting Professionals Community can help you grow your career.
