Are your meetings and events welcoming environments for LGBTQ participants? The meetings industry has made progress, but there is plenty of room for improvement. In the latest episode of Eventful: The Podcast for Meeting Professionals, we spoke with Jim Clapes, conference and events manager for Drug Policy Alliance, who is also chair of the LGBT Meeting Professionals Association.
He discussed how small changes - providing all-gender bathrooms, encouraging use of preferred pronouns and planning LGBTQ mixers - can make a big difference.
LGBT MPA is a network of more than 1,200 meeting industry professionals working to find business opportunities with one another and work toward greater inclusivity and diversity across the industry.
