Racial Diversity in the Events Industry: a year on From the 'black square'

23 Jun 2021
Keynote Theatre
This time last year, the world protested together against racial injustices and corporate organisations made promises to become more inclusive and diverse. Big players in the events industry also had their say, as the fact that our industry is not diverse could no longer be ignored. Event First Steps undertook the first ever industry wide research project into racial diversity with C&IT to put hard facts against that which we anecdotately knew to be true - creating a whitepaper: Achieving Racial Diversity in the Events Industry. This session will deep dive into the findings, both qualitative and quantitative, discussing where there is clear room for improvement, and share action points that you can take back to your team to ensure you are putting in the work to make real change.
