Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) is at the core of who we are — an inclusive global community dedicated to personal and business development, and inspiring all professionals engaged in live events to elevate their contribution to the industry. Our commitment to these values is unwavering. These principles are a mission-critical piece of our culture. We know that having varied perspectives generates better ideas to solve complex problems and that without diversity, equity, and inclusion, it would be impossible for our industry to do its best work.


Our Mission

Our mission is to continue to expanding diversity in our organization by creating a culture of equity, embracing differences, and promoting diverse cultures. We provide an internationally inclusive safe space for our members and other event industry professionals regardless of age, gender, gender identity, ability, ethnicity, nationality, race, and/or sexual orientation.

Representation Matters

Understanding Our Membership Is Important to US
