Designing Inclusive, Safe, and Welcoming Meetings

  • ASAE ANNUAL MEETING 2016 Salt Lake City, Utah

The make-up of organizational membership is increasingly diverse, and associations must become adept in addressing issues of inclusion (and inadvertent exclusion) of members and attendees at association events. While many associations are trying to diversify speaker line-ups at the podium, diversity and inclusion efforts must also extend to event attendees. What can your association do to ensure that your attendees have the experience of being welcomed, safe, and fully included in your events? Challenge your thinking and generate solutions to the challenges of ensuring full attendee inclusion at your events.
