Unconscious bias unfortunately shows up at special events. Women business professionals may be assumed to be spouses. People of color may be mistaken to be waitstaff. Multicultural attendees look around the room and count the few that look like them. Venues like resorts and country clubs may not always leave attendees feeling like they belong.

As event planners, how do you embrace diversity and cultivate inclusion to make everyone feel welcome? Award-winning inclusion expert Kathleen Zemaitis will share the top 3 ways you can design and execute events to authentically connect with your diverse attendee communities.
